The Noble museum is located in a lovely building in the old town, Gamla Stan district. It has a fascinating display and insightful videos about Nobel prize recipients. I was a little surprised at how small the museum is, but was advised that there are plans to build a new significantly larger museum. The museum has a great gift shop... More

We LOVED this museum! It is historical as well as inspiring. We took the tour to get oriented to the museum. Then we spent several hours looking at the various exhibits. Great place! They also offer free lockers!

Have been hearing Nobel since young, it sounded so far all this while. Kind of excited when knowing i get to visit it birth place. Well, it is not a place for "wow" but it is interesting spend sometime reading the past Nobel prize winner history and contribution. These people have been so much into our life.

I think my opinion of The Nobel Museum possibly comes from a different perspective than others, so I wouldn't rate it badly. However, as somebody who went to the museum as somebody with little knowledge of the prize I found the whole thing quite overwhelming. The museum was very small and I wasn't sure where to start. I think the... More

I can't say that I'm a fan of the award committee or their values, but the museum itself was great. It wasn't overwhelmingly large, and the few exhibits on display were very well done. Plenty to keep you entertained, and nicely located in the city.

We were surprised to see the Nobel Museum so far down the list of attractions in Stockholm. While this museum does not have the visual impact of the Vasa (what does?), it does a great job of explaining Alfred Nobel's vision. Recipients of the Nobel Prize have impact far beyond their area of research / expertise. A visit to the... More

Rather small museum in the heart of the old town. I would really advise to wait for the regular guided tours. (Almost every hour there is an English tour that last app 20-30 min). Experience is much better with the tour. Real interesting stories!!!

We liked the displays, we saw everything in less than 2 hours. Our favorite was an interactive section with names of particular prize winners for given years. We enjoyed a coffee in the little cafe afterwards.

Fascinating museum with a variety of ways to learn about the history of Alfred Nobel, the prize and ceremony as well as the prize winners from over the years.

Unless you have true interest in the Nobel prize don't bother. There is a picture of every prize winner strung from a dry cleaners revolving rack, that if you stand long enough the picture of any winner you know of will slowly trundle by. This about 15 feet above you. If you don't know any, move on. There are kiosks... More
