Fascinating history of a world renown award

Just happened to be passing by and decided to pop in to learn more about the Nobel Prize History. There was a free English tour that started at 1115. Entry SEK 100 per adult.

Visiting Stockholm for a day ? Then make sure to see this museum! Very well set out in a compact area and answers all the questions on who and what and why and when. The overview of Nobel's life was fascinating.

Since I had a few hours to see the city and it was raining like hell and since most of museums in Stockholm are pretty expensive, this was the only indoor experience in the capital of Sweden. I find it cool, cheap and can give an insight of what Nobel means, specially for the teenage daughter that went with me.... More

Being a science person, I was excited to visit the Nobel museum given how grand Nobel prize is. But this museum turned out to be very small and didn't give much information about the laureates or Alfred Nobel. Even the Museum shop was disappointing. I was hoping to buy something cool about Madam Curie (only scientist to have won this... More

I was on the old town with some free time and decided to visit this museum.. It's small, I was expecting some more information, and interactive gadgets. Bar/restaurant available.

Somehow they managed to take a museum about some of the most interesting people in the world and make it boring. Really boring. It's pretty much what you'd get if you scrolled through the page for the Nobel Prize on Wikipedia, if Wikipedia was written by tax accountants.

My 13-year old sone and I went to the Nobel Museum in July, and we weren't disappointed. There are a number of cool exhibits featuring Nobel laureates, their accomplishments, and their inspirations. The place isn't large, and it is entirely self-guided, so you need to take the initiative to read the displays and determine what interests you most. The primary... More

I loved this museum. So inspiring and full of great accomplishments. Would love to spend more time here. The reason I didn't was it was overcrowded. They didn't control number and it USA small space. There were tour groups and guided tours all going on and blocking space. One group even conducted a briefing in the gift shop and took... More

This really is a place worth visiting and, in my humble opinion, far more interesting than the Vasa museum. The displays and exhibits are some of the best I've seen in any museum and there are so many things to see and explore, even though it's in quite a small space. Try to see a few of the films about...

As you would expect, there is a history of Alfred Nobel's life and of the prize itself, and past winners. The most interesting part I found was the gallery of objects bequeathed by the past winners and their reasons for choosing that particular object. The guided tours looked interesting but were very busy. (I self-guided.) Open until 8 on Sundays... More
