Holmenkollen Ski Museum (Norwegian: Skimuseet i Holmenkollen) is located at the base of the Holmenkollen ski jump in Oslo, Norway.
The Ski Museum was founded in 1923 and is the world's oldest ski museum. The initiator of the museum was the architect Hjalmar Welhaven. His private collection formed the foundation of the antique and historic skis on display at the museum. Until 1951, the collection was housed in a building in the Oslo neighborhood of Frognerseteren. In connection with the rebuilding of Holmenkollbakken in 1951, the museum collection was moved to new premises at Holmenkollbakken.

This somewhat zany museum is worth the visit to the outskirts of town if you are very into skiing or incredibly interested in Nordic history. It was educational and also interactive. Definitely left with a feeling of the impact that the snow (obviously) has on the people who live in this country to this day.

It was really awesome. I had a great time hiking and seeing the jumping tower. If people are looking for a place to visit during this holiday season, I would say it's one of the best places they could possibly experiance.

The views here are stunning, you can look down across Oslo. This was particularly beautiful on a snowy day when everything was picturesque. The museum is quite fun too, there are a few interactive exhibits to play around with! I learnt quite a bit too

Great museum of ski history. Great experience being on the top of the ski jump. Look forward to museum shop getting jumpers in larger sizes.

Fun place to see. Go to the top for an amazing view. The museum is the oldest ski museum in the world, according to the front desk. It was decent, plenty of stuff for kids too. Plus we found the cutest troll statues in the gift shop.

Really cool to be able to go up the ski jump and see a full panoramic view of the surrounding area. Nice museum attached too with exhibits about how the jump has evolved over the years and also about snowboarding and skiing

Interesting but make sure you have enough time to see it all. Try to go on a clear day so you can see lots at the top of the jump

Interesting museum if you’re interested in skiing. The jump structure is spectacular.

If you love skiing, like I do, this is definitely worth a visit. Lots of fun history and lore. Once there, a visit to the top of the ski jump is fun too, albeit slow. Check online for hints about best times to to to avoid the line. Easy to get to from downtown with T-banen (city train).

Really interesting museum about skiing. Plus trip to the top of the ski jump. Surprisingly interesting museum. History of skiing, ski jumping etc. Examples of skis through history in exploration and sport. Great videos of ski jumping and stunts. The views from the top are amazing

Great trip out with fantastic views over the countryside. The jump is an outstanding structure. The views are amazing and you can take some great pictures

Come see it if you haven’t seen one before Given the high recommendation of his place on TripAdvisor, I made it a point to visit the Holmenkollen ski jump. It was the start of summer and temperatures were soaring. Needless to say, there was no white fluffy snow covering the ski slopes and because of that, the ski jump just didn’t look the same to me. I’ve learnt to associate skiing as a winter sport and with lots of snow on the ground. Unfortunately, this was not the case when I visited. Perhaps I’ll have to visit in winter the next time around. The Holmenkollen ski jump is still a sight to behold though. And when I was there, there was a children’s cross country race of some kind which seemed pretty entertaining for the younger ones.

Nice museum of skiing, the lovers of winter activities will enjoy the visit for sure. We went there for the panoramic view of Oslo from the top of the structure. It was a very pleasant sunny day with great visibility. This museum is also included in Oslo Pass list of points of interest. Few minutes drive from the city center. If you have free time, go there spend some time, get few photos. By the way, for the adrenaline addicts there is a great chance to enjoy yourself by fast descend from the top.

Lots of interesting information about ski jumping even for a novice. Also other skiing sports included. Elevator and the view from jump tower is a unique experience!

A Rare and Thrilling Experience, specially for those who are jumping from the Tower. ( Of course you are tied as in Zip Drive) It would be great during winter, with ice all around...
