Downstairs is a large exhibit about the most recent recipients. Photos, stories, videos. Very interesting! Upstairs was a display about each of the previous recipients. This makes the Center sound dry but it was very engaging and extremely well done! We didn't finish and would have gone back if time had allowed.

So important and meaningful. A wonderful place that honors those who work/worked to put light in dark places in this world. I loved it.

This was one of my favourite parts of Oslo, even though the regular exhibits weren't that great. They were made up for by the temporary exhibit on last year's Peace Prize winners, which is on until September - there was a lot of information about child workers and about these two individuals and what they are doing to fight for...

Thank you for taking time to visit and to write a review. You are absolutely right, the regular exhibits are undergoing extensive refurbishing and will reappear all new and shiny before summer. Glad Malala & Kailash made an impression, though! Safe travels! More

We were not expecting such as an exciting place, full of history and information that can really enhance your knowledge and make you happy. The museum is fully accessible for people with limited mobility and I can suggest it also if you are with kids because there are specific area and attraction for them. A must see in Oslo.

If you are in Oslo, visit this place. Near the City Hall and waterfront, you can miss it. I didn't have a chance to go inside and take a look at the museum, but it was interesting to see this building, knowing what it represents.

This is a 2 floor museum, nice to see but more like children, i liked though. It has 2 floors and it is very nice. Interactive, audio book and different expositions. Audio visual museum describes it better. Good to visit a it.

As I went in February I had the chance to see the exhibition featuring Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi. There were the actual acceptance speeches and also a lot of background information of both of them. Very informative and indeed thought-provoking. The actual laureates are always "covered" in the main exhibition hall and the rest of the centre/museum tells something... More

Had an Oslo Pass and was trying to get value for money from it squeezing in as many attractions as possible. This was an unexpected delight, lots of though provoking pieces and information displayed in an accessible way. Would definitely recommend. The cafe is worth a visit after for lunch, tasty, well put together food.

There is no doubt that the Oslo Pass is a great way to make your Oslo-stay a little more affordable. How fortunate for us you used it to drop by:) Thank you for the kind words and for taking time to write a review. More

Its an audio visual feast and inspiring to be introduced ( virtually) to so many exalted people in such a short space of time. Certainly worth a visit.
