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.

Holmenkollen Ski Museum Reviews
My husband had read about this and was keen to just go and see the structure. We made our way on public transport (T-bane from central station - west bound on line 1). It’s about 10min uphill walk... more »
Amazing that people dare to even go up to this hill. We enjoyed the museum alot also. After we went to frognerseteren and had dinner more »
It was a beautiful ski jumping tower with a lovely view to Oslo. This place several things to offer. You could walk around the tower and landing area, be in a ski jumping and downhill skiing simulator. There was a nice little museum and a shop on the first floor and last but not least - with the elevator you could go up to a tower and enjoy the 360degree view. Of course all of these things except walking around cost money.
Well worth the journey to get a sense of just how much training must go into ski jumping. The observatory at the top gives fantastic views. Just a warning, it's a long walk up the hill from the bus station. Be sure to leave your suitcases at the hotel.
