Into the White Wilderness

It only takes a quick glance at a map to understand why Norwegians have always been enthusiastic - and successful - polar explorers. The Fram Museum celebrates this great tradition, housing the famous ships, Fram and Gjøa, as well as exhibitions of the explorers' scientific, medical and personal equipment. The museum also contains a large collection of photographs and films taken during some of the most daring and important polar expeditions, including Roald Amundsen's successful navigation of the Northwest Passage and his later expedition to the South Pole. You can even go into the Fram to experience the conditions the explorers lived in during their voyages. Adventure, danger, privations, bravery - the romance of the classic era of polar exploration is well-displayed here.
