We didn't plan to come here today, but ended up spending 5 hours in this museum and really enjoyed it. On our arrival, we were directed to the audio guide app that can be downloaded from their website. After the Alfred Nobel part of the audio guide, we joined a guided tour and this really added to our knowledge and... More

We had the Stockholm card so went to this museum as it was included in the list of attractions. It is bang in the middle of GamlaStan- the old town. The place is not very big or too interesting.. If you like reading there is a lot you can do... Free wifi kept us busy :)

I really enjoyed this museum. I only had an hour before it closed but it was well worth it. There are displays and interactive screens. I felt inspired by learning a little about these amazing people and their dedication to their fields of expertise.

We took a tour which lasted about an hour. It was very informative and our 9-year-olds were very engaged, asking a lot of questions. After the tour, our girls went on a scavenger hunt, answering questions on a quiz based on information they can find on displays. In the end, they received a prize at the gift shop...it was a...

The tour explains the history of the awards and how Nobel created the wealth that funded the awards. This is not really a museum for kids.

It was in English; Take the guided tour no extra charge explained Nobel's life; every prize winner identified; short clip about prize winners from Budapest was best of many loops; inspiring quotes displayed and it is free on Tuesdays.

For me it was staff who made the visit so enjoyable! Seriously without informative, interesting and fun excursion I'm not sure I could rate the museum this high. Having pretty limited space the Nobel Museum uses it very clever. There are several interactive panels with the information about the award divided by the decades; there are models of the buildings... More

We hadn't planned enough time to really enjoy the museum but we did it anyway and rushed thru what there was to offer in 45 minutes. I heard about 20 min of the tour which I found very interesting...and they had a great little "quiz" for the kids to keep them engaged. They also had a few rooms of hands... More

The Nobel prize museum was not a pleasant surprise. It was very boring and not interesting at all. I only recommend a visit on Tuesdays between 17.00 and 20.00 where the entrance is free. Definitely don't pay to see it.
