We visited this museum and we weren't disappointed. The coolest thing about it, is that it has a conveyor belt attached to the ceiling and it shows you all the different Nobel prize winners along the years. We left feeling inspired. It was great!

Nobel Prizes could be a bit of a dry subject but the museum and exhibition was a very enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. The interactive self guided tour runs through your smartphone and the museum's WiFi system but, if you're worried about your battery you can borrow a device from the museum. Two little cinemas show short... More

Interesting place but we had to take a tour in the museum to understand that. Free tour every 15 minutes.

Very cool museum with information on all Nobel winners. The sheer number of recipients is so large, it's a mean feat to have all this information in one place. But, the museum does a very good job of presenting/displaying the information in different formats. Not as kid friendly as some museums (unless they are interested in science and can read).... More

I was surprised this attraction was so low on the tripadvisor list. We really enjoyed it. It was great to read and reflect on people who made such an impact on the world both last year and 100 years ago. A very 'human' exhibit with videos of previous winners talking about themselves so humbly. If you like taking time to... More

The Alfred Nobel room (section) of the museum is fascinating as it has real artifacts, while this museum is full of online video communication using screens. Otherwise disappointing.

They offer and audio guide that you play through your own phone using the free wifi. It's a beautiful and compact space with lots of information on how Nobel started the prize giving and how it comes to modern day significance.

The Nobel Museum was very disappointing and I thought a bit strange. There was a small section of interesting facts about Alfred Nobel. Besides the section about Alfred Nobel the museum has an exhibit of current Nobel Laureates and other information about earlier recipients. There is an audio guide that is available for an additional fee separate from the entrance... More

Quite a strange museum really. They have a small selection of objects linked to previous nobel prize winners, some of which are not even relevant to the prize itself like the shoes of a previous winner for example. They also have a very small room dedicated to nobel himself which is reasonabley informative. really thats about it. they several screens... More
