The Alfred Nobel room (section) of the museum is fascinating as it has real artifacts, while this museum is full of online video communication using screens. Otherwise disappointing.

They offer and audio guide that you play through your own phone using the free wifi. It's a beautiful and compact space with lots of information on how Nobel started the prize giving and how it comes to modern day significance.

The Nobel Museum was very disappointing and I thought a bit strange. There was a small section of interesting facts about Alfred Nobel. Besides the section about Alfred Nobel the museum has an exhibit of current Nobel Laureates and other information about earlier recipients. There is an audio guide that is available for an additional fee separate from the entrance... More

There's a ton of digital touch screen displays that do a good job of displaying info about every nobel prize ever... which seems like a plus, until you try it and you can't help thinking that it would be better on a web page. Don't get me wrong, the info is great, and I loved seeing some of the items... More

There's plenty of interractive kit her to keep both casual visitor and dedicated student occupied. The only problem is that the museum itself is quite small so the current prize holders get pride of place while the rest get to hang like washing as their pictures move around above the heads of the visitors like dishes in a bizarre aerial...

I found it entertain and I learned a lot. It had history but also wasn´t boring if you are in old town you should look for it. If you have the Stockholm card is for free!!
