It was in English; Take the guided tour no extra charge explained Nobel's life; every prize winner identified; short clip about prize winners from Budapest was best of many loops; inspiring quotes displayed and it is free on Tuesdays.

For me it was staff who made the visit so enjoyable! Seriously without informative, interesting and fun excursion I'm not sure I could rate the museum this high. Having pretty limited space the Nobel Museum uses it very clever. There are several interactive panels with the information about the award divided by the decades; there are models of the buildings... More

We hadn't planned enough time to really enjoy the museum but we did it anyway and rushed thru what there was to offer in 45 minutes. I heard about 20 min of the tour which I found very interesting...and they had a great little "quiz" for the kids to keep them engaged. They also had a few rooms of hands... More

The Nobel prize museum was not a pleasant surprise. It was very boring and not interesting at all. I only recommend a visit on Tuesdays between 17.00 and 20.00 where the entrance is free. Definitely don't pay to see it.

This museum has a overhead moving display of all Nobel prizes ever awarded. Also on the standing displays you can also see all the Nobel laureates' names and information, divided into ten-year periods. The information is a bit overwhelming, so you would probably need to focus on certain field of science and/or certain period of time. The free guided tour... More

I loved the way it was presented and the history of our nobel winners all in one place. Especially great was the science and peace history. Right beside the Palace and Old Town. I wish I had allowed more time.

Very interesting, but quite small and very expensive! But, I think it was all a little mixed up. I was looking for great structures or a chronological order of some kind. That wasn't really the case. Also the individual Nobel prize winners were presented digitally at touch screen TVs in the middle of the museum. That information was not really... More

Perhaps this museum is overlooked by the hordes of tourists snapping photos of the picturesque square it's on, but their loss is your gain. Take an hour out of your visit to the Old Town to learn about some of the world's most inspiring individuals. Two separate theatres provide short videos on various Nobel Laureates and Nobel Milieus for those... More

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and had a good few hours here. There was an informal lecture at 5pm which was very interesting and then we latched onto a tour guide. Again, there is some fascinating facts and insights that you wouldn't necessarily know about beforehand. Worth a visit!

Visiting the Nobel museum was our primary reason for traveling to Sweden. The experience was all that we had hoped it to be. The tour was fantastic and needs to be taken to appreciate the full experience. Learning about Nobel and his wish to reward excellence was fascinating. 100SKR or $16CAD for adults and children are free. I don't think... More
