The Basics

Fram was a veteran of many Arctic voyages when Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen–the first man to reach both North and South Poles–gained worldwide fame by sailing her to Antarctica from 1910 to 1912, where he beat the UK's Robert Scott in a race to the South Pole.

New dioramas capture the horrific conditions of polar exploration in the early 20th century, a recreation of Amundsen’s Antarctic base put together from photos and written sources, and displays on the Northwest Passage through the Arctic ice flows, all brought to life with the use of multimedia, interactive maps, and photographs. The highlight of a visit is boarding Fram to explore the ship’s cramped confines and learn of the hardships of polar exploration.

Wildcard

The Gjøa Ship The museum of course highlights the polar ship Fram, however, an underground tunnel leads to another building that houses Gjøa, the first ship to navigate the Northwest Passage. Perhaps the most fascinating parts of this attraction are the northern lights projected from the ship’s main deck and the exhibits that allow guests to experience the freezing climate and the magnificent fauna of the polar regions.
