A taste of the Ski Museum
There have been ski jumping competitions in Holmenkollen every year since 1892.
Holmenkollen has been named one of the world’s 3rd most famous sports arenas. The hill has been rebuilt 18 times, last time for the World Championships in 1982. At the Visitor Center you will be given the opportunity to explore the exiting history of Holmenkollen, and watch films from earlier competitions. Models of the old hill will be on display, as well as the impressive model of the ”Extendig Tradition” (the new Holmenkollen Ski Jump made by JDS architects). There will also historical films running.
