Holmenkollen Ski Museum
The Holmenkollen Ski museum and Jump tower is one of Norway’s most visited tourist attractions. The ski museum opened in 1923 and is the oldest museum in the world specialized in skiing.
The tradition of ski jumping in Holmenkollen goes all the way back to 1892 and every year Holmenkollen National Arena hosts the annual FIS World Cup competitions. The famous “Holmenkollen Sunday” is often called Norway’s second national day.
Holmenkollen Ski Jump was rebuilt for the 2011 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Holmenkollen. The new Ski Jump, with a spectacular and modern design, is a great landmark in the Oslo scenery. From the top of the tower you can enjoy a fantastic view of Oslo and the surrounding areas. The ski museum is located under the Holmenkollen Jump Tower, and covers 4000 years of skiing history.
In September 2011 the new addition to the Ski Museum “Iskosset” opened to the public. In houses a new exhibition area and an auditorium. A new exhibition about snowboard and modern skiing was opened in 2014. In addition we have two shops, a café and a ski simulator.
