Although it is a museum for everyone, adults may appreciate it the most. Allow two hours to peruse the exhibits, partake in surveys, watch films, and learn about people and their important contributions to our world. (The Nobels by Decade touchscreen exhibit could use attention from the Museum Director as many of the prize recipients have no accompanying information with... More

Is a very expensive and small museum, with pretty much no information about the prize and the history of it. £10 for the entrance that I really hope helps the Nobel Foundation ...

Sometimes I have the problem of not having enough time in museums, and I am fast. With this museum I was done in 30 minutes. I paid 70 sek for entrance as a student, but I overheard that after five it is free, I would call to comfirm

Nobel Museum is a small museum but very interesting. The museologists tried to create an iteractive museum due to its thematic specificity. Someone should definitely visit it because of its uniqueness and its location on a small pisturesque square. But have in mind that the admission price it's not low it's 100 sek about 11 euros, more expensive than other... More

Went on one of the museum's free guided tours which I think made it worthwhile. He was very knowledge and gave a good overview of the prize, how it is awarded and some of its recipients and nominees. Interesting gallery with exhibits donated by previous laureates. The rest of it wasn't that interesting. They have placards on the ceiling with... More

However I felt like this was a glorified library. Yes - some original items on view, plus some films - and the building is pretty - however after 30min I was bored. But I also have a short attention span :) Avoid the Nobel Ice Cream. Its just normal dairy served as it would be at the main event. For... More

Since the famous Nobel prize ceremony is held annually in Stockholm, this museum was on our priority visiting list. It is on the main central island, Gamla Stan, around the corner from the Royal palace. The entrance is 100 SEK (11 Eur), but free with the Stockholm card (highly recommend, DO BUY it). The museum displays all the winners on... More

My husband and I visited the Nobel Museum mid-week in late August. I was left feeling happy that we visited, but mixed about the need to visit. We took the first English language tour and our guide was both a wealth of information and enthusiastic. She highlighted a lot of the female recipients and her love of the place was... More

I was very excited about visiting the Nobel Museum and was honestly disappointed. There is quite a bit of history to enjoy and you are able to read about every single Nobel Laureate, but really is not a whole lot to see.

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
