Loved everything about the Noble Peace Centre - fro m the current exhibition of the 2014 Laureates and the two great stories that were told, to the historical reviews of the last ten/twelve years since the centre opened - through the history of all the Laureates - even the coffee shop - Alfred's. I think it served the best coffee... More

We had limited time left in Oslo and it was raining so we decided to visit the Nobel Peace centre rather than a more outdoor experience. We were not disappointed. Our guide was articulate, informed and fluent in English and was skilled in getting participation from our party. We learned a lot about Malalla and about Kailash the 2014 winners,... More

The Nobel Peace Centre is a very good museum in the heart of Oslo. It can be found next to city hall and just across from the boats. The museum is modern and is packed with information. I did however feel that the museum lacked the history behind the award and on the whole focused on the people who had... More

We just visited the center. I only recommend it if you have the Oslo Pass and time to kill. The exhibits are beautiful and high-tech but we felt there wasn't enough content or "meat." Additionally, several of the exhibits are designed for only one person (or party) to use at a time. On the positive side, the gift shop has... More

Our first reason to enter this attraction was simply to escape from the heavy rain, but we found the whole experience so engrossing we spent 2 hours there, including a coffee break. The main ground floor display centred on the two 2104 winners Kailash Satyarthi and the courageous Malala Yousafzai. The story of their lives and work was clearly and... More

It was the 10th anniversary of the centre when we arrived so everyone got in free, although this is included on the Oslo card. There were key exhibitions on the 2014 winners, the Dalai Lama, and interactive areas for children, plus an amazing room with an individual screen with candle lights for each winner, with interactive displays for more information....

We bought a 24 hour pass that gives you entrance into a number of museums and a pass on the ferry over to Bygdoy. We probably wouldn't have gone to the Nobel museum otherwise but we really enjoyed it. Very informative and inspiring. Nicely done.

This was one of the most informative attractions I have visited. The exhibits were educational and interactive, with the perfect mix of visual stimulation and text. The tour guide was very knowledgable, personable, and helpful.

Free with the Oslo Pass, which is a must buy in my opinion. Easy to find and central. There are a lot of different displays on past Peace Prize winners - and you may well spend longer here than planned! All very interesting, though I would think not for young children. The gift shop is expensive. The adjoining café is... More
