The life and achievements of 17years old Malala, one of the two recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize 2014, is exhibited in Oslo until Aug. 31st 2015. The exhibition gives very touching documentation of Malala's verbal struggle for girls' education, originally in the Pakistani Swat Valley, and since the Taleban gun attack on her, also education all over the world....

We had free entry because it had something to do with the commemoration of the founding of the museum? Anyway, it's a decent sized museum that wouldn't bore you one bit. We enjoyed reading about the recent few noble peace prize winners. A large portion of the lobby is dedicated to the most recent peace prize winner.

Perhaps it is because I am personally very interested in the Nobel Peace Prize, but I spent hours at this museum learning about the laureates and Alfred Nobel. I loved the visit and would recommend it to anyone.

The main feature is the work of the current winners, Malala and Kailash. This formed an interesting, and important exhibition. However, given the importance of the prize and the worthiness of the work undertaken by its many recipients, we felt more could be done to feature the work and life stories of early winners - even if this was rotated...

They offer tours in English, yet the guide I had did not speak English all that well and therefore lost the attention of the tour group. I would suggest walking around the exhibits at your own pace and soak up the information. When the tour had finished I had to go thru the place all over again.

Superb venue and brilliant exhibition - the added bonus being that it was free entry! The exhibitions are superb - thought provoking and long lasting - this maybe short and sweet but if you have a spare 90 mins in Oslo, then it's well worth a visit It certainly makes you think and gives you a certain level of humility...

Having been in Oslo while they were having the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, and actually having gotten to see Malala and Kailash in person while they were in Oslo, I was excited to check out the Nobel Peace Center. But I was disappointed in the museum. It's kind of more of an art exhibition about Nobel Peace Prize winners... More

By chance saw this Nobel Peace Centre after joining the mini cruise, we went in out of curiosity, well, why not? after all, it's free for us with a 72 hours Oslo pass. But it's well worth it. Interesting to know that what happened to those who keep fighting for peace all other the world. Get to know all the... More
