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 Outdated reference capabilities made finding a particular honoree difficult.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

I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this museum. We used the Stockholm card for entry and probably wouldn't have gone out of our way to visit it otherwise but I would have missed out if we hadn't. Ultra modern displays and a really pleasant environment for exploring. Guided tours take place too. I found this place really... More

Well now my elder son (a medical doctor) got quite animated by some of the exhibits here. I thought the way it was presented was quite dull, there is a very small interactive 'children's' room but generally I felt I could have searched the internet and got as much out of the experience. If you don't have the Stockholm card... More

Small, but very interesting and important museum, especially if you are curious and/or respectful of the process and people who have been selected to receive the awards.
