The brand new Holmenkollen (The Holmenkollen Tower and Ski jump) is ready for the World Ski Championship in February 2011. In addition to the ski jump, there's a fun ski simulator and Holmenkollen skimuseum, the world's oldest museum dedicated to the history of skiing. Located in the huge jump, the museum covers the 4000-year-old history of skiing. Skis exhibited include Viking skis and the ones used by famous Polar explorers Roald Amundsen and Fritjof Nansen, as well as the royal family's collection of skis. The view from Holmenkollen is fabulous on clear days; you see most of Oslo and the Oslo fjord.
