There was a lot more to see than I expected at this museum. Not only can you track the history of the prize and its winners, but you can see movies with interviews of winners talking about their work, movies about places involved, hear people talk about what the values around the prize mean to them, and see artifacts used...

The Nobel Museum is rather small but filled with modern digital archives and video installations about the Nobel price and Nobel price laureates; there's also a separate room only about Alfred Nobel. You can also see some of instruments used by Nobel price winners, but don't expect too much: the museum is small! All in all, very interesting information and... More

This museum is a very interesting Museum. Very inspiring and really makes you appreciate the brilliance of all the Nobel laureates. Watching the small movies about the winners and what they achieved is very interesting. I would recommend doing the free guided tours that they have, give a little more purpose and direction to the visit.

This museum captures entire history of Alfred Nobel , the process and every single detail of how a nobel price is awarded. Its a must visit for history lovers and all those who want to know about alfred nobel as a person and about nobel award. This was included in Stockholm Card.

An inspiring and thought provoking museum honoring those that have tried to prevent war. The background music and lighting underscores the importance of Nobel Peace Prize and invites self reflection on the human condition.

Recommended to anyone. Take a full day :) An unique place to learn, in words, pictures, photos, sounds, videos and artifacts. You'll immerge in science.

In my opinion and in view of all the No el Laureates (dead and alive) the exhibit/museum could be so much better. The short movies in the cinema were uninspired - I'm a scientist/patent attorney and I had to ask "so what's the point of this?" It shouldn't be that hard. The wall of quotes was cool - but really...

First off, I'll say that there are some cool exhibits of items relating to prize winners. There is also an interesting mechanical track on the ceiling whirring around with pictures of prize winners being carried around the museum. There are also some nice inspirational quotes. However, it's really expensive for what it is, and all of the content is pretty... More

A good spot for a wet afternoon. I walked in just as a guided tour was starting. The guide was animated and informative and I think this really added to the overall experience. There are stations where you can look up most of the previous winners. Obviously previous winners have achieved great things in very specific fields and I found... More

This is a very small museum; we were like "that's it?" There are very few exhibits, and most are text-heavy and there's nothing much that you can't find on Wikipedia. They do have a few artifacts that were interesting to see, but they could have made a lot more out of it. Not worth the 100 Kr.
