The Fram Museum (Norwegian - Frammuseet) is a museum telling the story of Norwegian polar exploration. It is located on the island of Bygdøy in Oslo, Norway, centred on the original exploration vessel Fram.
The museum was inaugurated on 20 May 1936, and honours Norwegian (rather than international) polar exploration and the three great Norwegian polar explorers - Fridtjof Nansen, Otto Sverdrup and Roald Amundsen. The original interior of Fram is intact, and visitors can go inside the ship to view it. The museum also exhibits images of the fauna of the polar regions, such as polar bears and penguins.
