Must see · Specialty Museum · Museum
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.

  • You cannot understand how big that jump tower is until you're standing next to it. The museum itself is very interesting and informative. The view from there top could be better, so many barriers if you're not over 6ft I don't think you can see anything.
  • We went one day before Christmas in 2019. It was snowing when we were there and its looks amazing. We miss the Ski museum because we spent more time in snow. Have a plan to visit this pace again near future. Walking road near ski area was slippery so keep remember about good grip shoes.
