Although my husband and I were in Stockholm on a somewhat rainy day, our preference was still to spend most of the day walking around the city, particularly the Gamla Stan. The one attraction we decided to see was the Nobel Museum. It was indeed small and manageable in a short period of time, but we were not disappointed, as... More

Honestly, I had no plans on visiting this museum while planning our Stockholm trip, but since our walking tour started from here, we thought it'd be interesting to check out. Plus, we had free admission with our Stockholm Card. Also, I am not going to lie, I just wanted a place to sit and rest from all the walking (and... More

Very informative, well presented in multiple languages, excellent tour guide. Dislike prompts given by trip advisor when it thinks that you haven't said enough

It is a Nice tought to have a noble Price museum. These people deserve their recognition. But the museum itself.. Is pretty boring.

We went here with the Stockholm card. The museum is good, but it should be bigger and more interactive. It is better than the Oslo museum, but it felt too much like a museum than an enjoyable learning experience. I am glad we went, but I would not go again. It is located in a cool part of Gamla Stan...

I supposed that I'll see there a lot of interesting experiments and information abouit the winners, but I was a little dissapointed... For some winners they have only the name, am maybe a 4 words description of the work. It looks modern and everything, it had some big touch screens for searching for your favourite researcher, but the information is... More

We loved the museum. After reading some reviews here, I was a bit unsure whether to go or not. But we had a great afternoon at the Museum. OK, the information was skimpy on the prize winners. But I didn't know much about Nobel or the prizes so the museum gave a great overview. We did the 3 pm English... More

Very small. For the accomplishments of world-renowned scientists, humanitarians and literary geniuses it was not what I expected. Outdated reference capabilities made finding a particular honoree difficult. I sat through two of their short films and they were awful. Our favorite thing was the chocolate Nobel prizes we bought to take home, Fortunately we went on Tuesday afternoon, and discovered... More

A great way to learn more about the Nobel Prize and its founder as well as Nobel Laureates and their creative endeavours. Very much interactive as well as a guided tour of this beautiful 18th century building. There is a bistro and shop amongst other activities. Concessions offered. Very easy to spend a couple of hoursthere and I had to... More
