Do you want to display them on top of a map or use them to add new data?

A bit more information about what you're trying to do here would help. Are you talking about a web map, or on a phone, or something else? What sort of rendering are you talking about - tiles, or a vector map? What sort of information do you want to show?

So you probably want to display a shapefile using OpenLayers. What about cartinus' answer?

An OSM-map on the web is typically displayed using OpenLayers or Leaflet.

A quick Google search on "openlayers shapefile example" gives this blog as a first hit.
