This is a nice building, inside and out - of some interest from a tourist point of view - but mainly a library for research. I passed by as I was walking from the hotel to the centre.

I was very pleased to visit the Institute and view all the illuminating photos of the nobel laureates, was particularly pleased to see those whom we share a common kenyan background ie President Obama and the late Prof .Wangari Maathai ,it really felt like home to be there

Do visit the Nobel Institute if you are in Oslo. It shows the history of the Nobel Peace price with pictures, film and a (short) walking tour.

Excellent situated beside the Town Hall and Aker Brygge you find this excellent old Train Station which have been sympathetically changed into a good and peaceful place to get an overview of all the award winners through time.

Only the Peace prize winners, Others are in Stockholm. Interactive exhibits were good. One of the photo exhibition was about a US soldier's memories of Afghanistan war. Couldn't see the relevance in a Peace museum. Store could do with more items.

Infromative, good and everything you'd expect. Although you can say what you want about the peace prize these days, I'd say give this museum a go.

I don't quite understand why this is listed here on tripadvisor, as a tourist this is one of the more unthinkable places to visit. It's mainly a library and a few spaces to study, good collection of history and political science.
