Holmenkollen Ski Museum
High-tech museum for the history of sport & expedition skiing, with a ski simulator & tower views.
The Holmenkollen Ski Museum, located underneath the famous ski jump, is the oldest of its kind in the world. An exhibition with 2500 pairs of skis, some of which have belonged to Norway’s most famous skiers and members of The Royal Family, takes you through 4000 years of skiing history. The museum also shows artefacts from the expeditions of Norwegian polar heroes Nansen and Amundsen, and an exhibition on snowboarding and modern skiing. Kids will enjoy the special children’s room Blåkollen (‘the blue hill’), which includes several slides, playhouses and exciting nooks and crannies. From the museum lobby you can take the elevator up to the plateau of the iconic ski jump tower, which boasts wonderful panoramic views of the city.
Café and souvenir shop.
NB! The ski jump tower and the museum may stay closed during special events, especially during winter. Please check Holmenkollen’s own website.
