#4 of 697 in Museums in Norway
Discover why skiing is so important to Norway's culture and visit a modern ski jump at Holmenkollen Ski Museum. Easily reached by metro, the ski jump was opened in 2010, and stands 64 m (209 ft) high. Hop on one of the enclosed elevators that bring you up to the all-glass starting box, where you can take in a 360-degree view of Oslo. Adrenaline junkies can ride down on Fly Holmenkollen, the zipline that runs 361 m (1,184 ft) and follows the same route as the ski jumpers. Also try the Kollen Ski Simulator, which uses advanced technology to show you what it feels like to ski down one of the toughest slopes. Stop by the museum on your way out to witness over 4,000 years of ski history and learn about how skis were once a necessity in this region. The price of the museum is included in your ticket up to the jump. Add Holmenkollen Ski Museum to your Oslo travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Oslo trip planner .

  • Ski jumping competitions have been held here every year since 1892 and 2008. This place is considered one of the three most famous sports stadiums in the world. The current record is 144 meters and was set by Robert Johansson of Norway in 2019. Being world famous, it represents an international symbol of ski jumping and skiing in general. Eventually, the first tower, called "Tower of Babel", was erected; permanent grandstands and a tower of judges were built. Lately, an elevator was added to the Jump Tower At Olympics it had 120000 spectators. It was very important to install a Restaurant, serving for meetings, even in summer. There is also a museum on site that we didn't have time to visit. It was very interesting to know this place, especially because we live in countries where there are not so huge ski slopes and very few people are engaged in winter sports.

  • Good Environmental and you must try ski simulator. It's fun but not that worth so much. Maybe for kids it's okay they would be happy but not fun for adult or teen. Cus it's just simulation
  • Great experience in Oslo. Ski Museum is nice to walk through and view from the top provides great overview over the city. They also have zip line option to slide from the top. + I tried simulator of ski jump, enjoyed it.
