This book contains all the texts and illustrations from the permanent exhibitions in the Fram Museum. In addition there are a number of photos of Fram and Gjøa, of exhibited artifacts, and a map of the museum.

In addition to all the expeditions of Fridtjof Nansen, Otto Sverdrup and Roald Amundsen, the book contains extended biographies of their crew members. Other Norwegian pioneers in the Arctic and Antarctic: C. A. Larsen, Eivind Astrup, Carsten Borchgrevink, and Henry Larsen are also represented, as are the men who contributed to the main expeditions’ finances. I wish more museums would produce such a comprehensive guidebook!
