The Nobel Museum is very close to the Royal Palace and it is included in the Stockholm Card (a very good value, by the way). Adult admission is 100 SEK. The museum is not very big and you wouldn't need more than an hour, unless you watched the rotating short films in the auditorium (highlighting the achievements of individual Nobel... More

If you are paying money to enter the Nobel museum, you might emerge pretty pissed off. I personally didn't find it very interesting. Some artifacts belonging to some Nobel prize winners are kept here. It's a very small museum, you can see everything in about 45 mins. They have free entry on Tuesdays between 5-8 pm

A Nobel Museum should exist in every country! It reminds you that we are the ones who make history, and the one that future generations will learn about, we are the ones who are now writing it. Nobel Museum unlike any other world museum is about all of us yesterday, today and tomorrow. Very inspiring, I went back home still... More

It seems everything is politicized and they try to make out that some secretive committee can decide on mankind's greatest achievements. You have to laugh at the self importance of it all, they have an exhibit about how nobel prize winners contributed to science and innovation. It's actually very small and nothing much to see except a list of winners... More

The Nobel Museum was not exactly what I was expecting. I thought there would be a lot of fascinating experiments, but there were just some historical facts about the prize winners. However, it kept me busy on a rainy, cold evening. There was an informal lecture about Marie Curie which I found very interesting. Their gift shop is quite small,... More

We didn't plan to come here today, but ended up spending 5 hours in this museum and really enjoyed it. On our arrival, we were directed to the audio guide app that can be downloaded from their website. After the Alfred Nobel part of the audio guide, we joined a guided tour and this really added to our knowledge and... More

We had the Stockholm card so went to this museum as it was included in the list of attractions. It is bang in the middle of GamlaStan- the old town. The place is not very big or too interesting.. If you like reading there is a lot you can do... Free wifi kept us busy :)

I really enjoyed this museum. I only had an hour before it closed but it was well worth it. There are displays and interactive screens. I felt inspired by learning a little about these amazing people and their dedication to their fields of expertise.
