The museum is a little boring. The content is not really easy to present to the public. Interesting to know about Nobel's life but there are better things to see. The location invites to go but it is boring.

Nicely curated museum. Here comes the spontaneous travel findings: Look underneath the chairs in the Cafe of the Museum, you will find signatures of past winners!

I went here with my family and had huge expectations. Apparently it turned out to be boring and small. They collect an entrance fee and the place is not at all worth for what we pay. There are just few items and inventions. They play some videos and documentaries. There is a tour guide who takes around and shows things.... More

We had a guided tour in English. It is the most perfect guided tour we ever have experienced! Clear voice, articulated, giving the full story of Alfred Nobel - and always with humour - just so perfect. Just visiting the museum without this guidance will give you quite another experience - so this is highly recommended.

Interesting, especially for the scientists among us --- and no I didn't mean to slight the readers & writers and economists. Happened to arrive 5 minutes before the tour in English, which was very nicely done. Wish one could have read a little bit more about the work that won the prize for the winners -- the multimedia displays were... More

If you like to know something about Nobel history, this is a great place to explore with your children. They give a free guided tour in English which is well worth it. There are pages from his will, Nobel's timeline and history including an animated one for kids, some video excerpts from Nobel laureates, pictures of all Nobel laureates, etc.... More

The museum of the Swedish Academy, the Nobel Museum, presents information about the idea behind the original Nobel Prize and it's founder, Alfred Nobel. It is a place of wonder to visit and is in beautiful settings. Many guided tours are available in many languages. The guides can point out what the individual may have missed. There is a very...

My partner and I came here only 70% enthusiastic for the experience (desiring little more than to get out of the cheese-gratingly cold outdoors). We ended up being politely chivvied out at closing time over 2 hours later (this was a Saturday and the museum closed at 5pm). We both read absolutely everything. We sat in the cinema room and...

Very interesting place to see. We visited this place during the culture night, so the entrance for for free, but it also meant a ton of people trying to get in. It's rather small space for so much information, but it is done in a very cool way. Loved the moving profiles of people below the ceiling. Very adorable café... More

Even if you are not that into museums and this topic this was an interesting and moving museum. It's been set up for lots of levels of people so there are things for toddlers, school aged children and all the way up to adults. It wasn't my favourite place in Stockholm but it was interesting to hear how different people... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
