This is a small museum but extremely busy when we were there. Guided tours are provided in different languages and the guide that we had for an English tour, we found was very knowledgeable. There is nothing hi tech about the museum, the photos of the Nobel Laureates being on a 'conveyor belt' type arrangement overhead because of the lack... More

Less a museum about Alfred Nobel than a research bank of all laureates, including their personal possessions and inspirations. Videos, objects and a cool track on the ceiling moving posters of each candidate like dominos across the sky. For the 2014 laureates the local university of art and design has created an exhibition expressing in sculture, fashion and music how... More

Definitely worth a bit of research beforehand if you're patriotic, as the home nations are not listed along with prizes. Definitely a fairly small display, but really interesting and packed with information about the laureates, the prize, and the history and development of the whole thing. When I was there, interpretations of the prize winning projects were being displayed, which... More

A new Nobel Museum is scheduled to open in 2018, but in the meantime, the museum does its best to honour the more than 800 Laureates who have been awarded the annual Nobel Prize since Alfred Nobel's death in 1896. The museum relies on rotating 3 minute films of 33 of the Laureates, and a 35 minute tour, in English,... More

The museum is a must see to understand why the Nobel Prize is so synonymous to Stockholm. You can take a breezy visit along with the guided tour which is quite informative and then stay back for an extended vist on your own. A bit difficult for young children to understand so it would be better to prime them on... More

The Nobel Museum is at a place where it used to be a stock exchange. The ceiling still retains that rotor mechanism that displays the picture and information of the prize winners at random. The museum is small with exhibition about life of Alfred Nobel. There is information about the Nobel prize winners and artifacts donated by the the prize... More

We went to the Nobel museum with our visit Stockholm card. Really recommend the tour which is included in the entry price. The tour explains the history of the museum and the prize and took around 45 minutes in all to do. The museum is quite small but lots of interesting things to see.

A very small museum - much smaller then I was expecting. It describes Nobel's life and the winners of the prize from the last hundred years or so. There's some artefacts from prizewinners - if you're interested in science or the history of science, it's worth seeing. Highlights for me included Max Perutz's model of haemoglobin (and the diffraction pattern,)... More
