Ski museum

In Norway one says that Norwegians are born with skis on. And in respect for ourselves, we have our own ski mueum. Ski museum conveys 4,000 years of skiing history and opened in 1923.
Ski Museum collection consists of about 2,500 pairs of skis (including the royal family and senior practitioners ski).

The ski jump

Holmenkollen ski jump has been rebuilt 19 times, and jump hill as it looks today opened in 2010. Start house is 64 meters tall and is over 400 meters above central Oslo. From the top of the hill you get Oslos most amazing view.

Activities

Outside the museum is set up a ski simulator that gives visitors a chance to experience what it is to slide down the slopes in over 100 km/h. If this is not enough for you, you can always try Kollensvevet which is open in summer. This is a 361 meter long zipline that starts at the top of the tower and stops in the bottom of the hill.
