Brilliant, innovative, imaginative, thoughtful. No permanent exhibits but whoever thought of the design and exhibits is a genius. This is a must for any Oslo visitor who feels they are a world citizen.

We really enjoyed this museum, free with the Oslo pass. The guided tour is especially helpful in showing visitors all the interactive features of the museum to explore individual Nobel Peace Prize winners as well as organizations. It would be great for both families and individuals of all ages.

The exhibits are really up to date (including information on the problems in the Ukraine). However, of all the museums we went to on our trip, we would say this was the least interesting. The museum is well done and modern, but it was not very exciting. If I was limited for time, I'd skip it.

I was considering skipping this, but glad I went. The bottom floor was mildly interesting. The top floor has info on this year's recipient which was eye opening. Then there is a room of all the past winners. Also liked the room of Nobel's biography. Very informative. I still wonder why the Peace prize is in Norway and the other... More

Very interesting and eye opening museum. There is not as much inside as I thought there would be for such a high profile award, takes about an hour or more to get round, but what's there is very informative and thought provoking. A must see if your in Oslo.

This was just OK, and quite frankly I think it could have been better. There were special exhibits on social media and combatting chemical weapons, and Liu Xiaobo, but much less information than I had hoped on prior Nobel Prize winners. The Nobel Field presented all of the winners in a creative manner, but didn't provide nearly enough content on... More
