Fram Museum

The museum is dedicated to the famous Fram ship, used to explore the North and South poles from 1893. FFD created a series of exhibits for permanent placement at the museum.

A fibreglass igloo provided a play area with an interactive screen to show how Eskimos lived; a sledge foam puzzle could be constructed to show how things were transported across the arctic and a windmill mimicked the one used on the original ship to harness wind for on-board electricity.

A mechanical bench exhibit recreated the sensation of the roll on the round, hulled ship, designed to protect it from icebergs. Through the periscope, visitors can see the bottom deck containing the engine and storerooms.
