The Nansen saloon (below the aft deck)


The Nansen Saloon

The Nansen saloon, located in the aft of Fram, was the only saloon on the first expedition. Here Nansen and his crew ate their meals and in the cabins around they lived for 3 years while drifting with the ice over the Arctic Ocean, hoping to reach the North Pole.

Framheim (lunch)



Framheim is the Museum Café, named after Amundsen's base built on the ice in Antarctica. There he and the crew lived before they attempted to reach the South Pole. In the Café we have built similar cabins with tables and benches inside, and windows through which one can see the northern lights and movies from various polar expeditions.

Capacity: 60 people

The Gjøa-building (1. floor)


Ground floor Gjøa

After waiting on the lawn outside the Fram Museum for many years, Amundsen's polar ship Gjøa has finally been brought inside. Around the ship and among the exhibits one can now arrange even larger events. Not only do you get to sit under and around the first ship to sail through the Northwest Passage, but hanging from the ceiling are models of the air ship Norge and the N-25 airplane.
