The center is set up with information, pictures and a short bio on each of the Nobel Peace winners. Very interesting and a reminder of the impact that one or two people can have in the world. We were in Oslo when the 2014 winners were announced-- so it felt more significant.

Before visiting this museum I really couldn't think of what they could possibly offer that I couldn't find in the internet, but was interested in visiting anyway. Unfortunately, this was one of the least interesting museums I've visited. There were minimal information about the Nobel Peace Laureates, obviously, the internet or a book would produce more detailed information about them.... More

Visiting the Alfred Nobel museum in Stockholm (which is far more interesting than this one), we wanted to visit this one as well. All Nobel prize ceremonies are held in Stockholm, except for Peace, which is held here, in Oslo. The museum is centrally located, opposite the City Hall, and close to ferries. We spent some half an hour inside.... More

Located close to Aker Brygge, the museum is pretty informative. You see many interesting things the most important being the Nobel Book on Level 2. Good place to spend a couple of hours.

Entry to the Nobel Peace Center is included in the Oslo Pass and it is located near the Opera House and the Harbour. The exhibits were very inspiring, informative and offered a lot of interactive options. there is also a small gift/souvenir shop inside.

The museum is a mix of temporary displays (the focus was the 2013 winners of the Nobel Peace Prize and chemical weapons) and permanent displays. Temporary displays were excellent, what was disappointing was the limited information on Nobel himself - limited to an interactive story book. Considering his contributions to the world of war and the world of peace I... More
