Tiny museum with about 2 exhibits, and you can find all the info from the exhibitions on the internet anyway, and it's not even presented particularly well. Worst 100SEK ever spent and a shame on such an important institution.

I think the best way to appreciate this museum is to take the tour first, then look round on your own afterwards. The museum opened at 11am and we took the English tour at 11:15. Our guide told the story of Alfred Nobel and the history of the prize very well and we learned a lot of interesting facts. Allow... More

I highly recommend the guided tour! We were very lucky to have Petter as our guide. It was so interesting! We didn't want to leave the museum.

Well located in Gamla Stan close to many other attractions. We had an enthusiastic (free) tour of the museum. It has some interesting exhibits and our guide was great. I especially liked that the chairs in the bistro are signed by Nobel prize winners. We visited on the day that the Nobel Prizes are awarded, and the museum put on... More

This place will give anyone a good idea of current world's progress history. It closes at 5.00 pm, so you need to go there before two hours to enjoy the full museum properly. I had less time to read and learn about all Nobel laureates. You can buy gifts for your friends from the Nobel shop. It will be priceless... More

The Nobel Museum is conveniently located at the heart of the Old Town (Gamla Stan). It contains comprehensive history about Nobel as well as previous prize-winners. I find previous prize-winners’ quotes particularly interesting and thought-provoking. I only went for the audio guide this time – I felt I didn’t get as much out of it as I could have done.... More

I had not visited this museum before, but it had been recommended by a scientist friend and my non-scientist daughter and I had some time on the last day of my Stockholm visit. I thought it was very well designed and thought-provoking. The short movies about the Nobel laureates were especially interesting; I wish that I had had time to... More

This museum is of course about creativity. The guide was excellent. I found the strories about the Nobel laureates hard to read. Glad I was able to come here. Nice bookstore
