Was great to hear and read of people who have impacted our lives, either directly or indirectly. The guide was all of enthusiastic, informative and easy to understand. It was quite crowded when we were there, soon after the 11 am opening time on a Saturday, so that might be a time slot to avoid if you can.

An oddly laid out museum describing the ideas of Nobel prize winners. We found the short films (less than 5 minutes) on random prize winners which were shown in one of the Auditorium were the most interesting part of the museum - since you can learn about great people you have never heard of.

I was going to visit Stockholm and decided to visit The Nobel Museum to learn more amout this interesting man. It is situated not far from the Royal Palace and you can easily find it. I thought that I would see so many interesting things telling about Nobel's life, but was a bit disappointed. You can see just some Nobel's... More

Although I was quite excited about this Nobel Museum which I thought it's definetely a must see, it really didn't meet up my expectations. Can't say what i expected from it, but I left the museum under the impression that it wouldn't have been such a loss if I would have missed it. The tour guide though deserves all the... More

I didn't expect too much at first but the actual Nobel Museum was actually greatly designed, with perfect multimedia support to enhance ambience of Nobel Prize. Several significant discovery even are shown in either model or perfect replica. Souvenir shop is also available to help us memorize the visit. And finally the strategic location, right in front of Stortorget, adds... More

There are not any interesting or attractive things in the museum. There are some PCs on the floor and you can reach information about people who had nobel prize. There was "Kultur Natt" when i visited the museum so the entrance was free. However it is about 100 SEK in a regular day. I don't advise it.

We were lucky enough to visit this museum at cultural night. So we didn't pay any kind of admission. I personally enjoyed this small museum and 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 and moreover about Alfred Nobel. I would like also... More

Apparently I am the only one who has this opinion. It's not a bad museum, but I felt disappointed, because I expected to see more stuff. They talk a bit about Nobel, that's ok, and they displace some important Nobel Prizes along the history, but I felt disappointed because they hardly talk about Literature or Peace. It's 80 % about...

Everyone knows the Nobel prizes, here you can learn the history behind them. There are guided tours (in English) many times a day so its possible to know even more. I think the tour was the best of the museum, I got to know so many more details and facts. The museum has also wifi in case you want to... More

We visited this museum and we weren't disappointed. The coolest thing about it, is that it has a conveyor belt attached to the ceiling and it shows you all the different Nobel prize winners along the years. We left feeling inspired. It was great!
