The Nobel Peace Center is well-organized, with the ground floor devoted to an exhibition about the latest laureates (when I visited, Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi) and the upper floor with more general exhibitions. I stayed almost two hours, and I could have spent a bit longer if I had had more time. The exhibition about Malala and Kailash was... More

This was one of my must see sites for Oslo, judging by various guide books. I was completely shocked at how much it cost for what you get! I have rarely been as disappointed in something as this, I think I was done in about 30 minutes. There is far less to see in the center than it appears from... More

Very well put together exhibition. The downstairs is dedicated to the current years winners - which this year features two incredible stories! The upstairs contains a history of the award which is just brilliant. If you're interested in justice issues and politics then it will be great. Martin Luther King's acceptance speech is worth watching!

There was a lot of information about the prize and the recipients. However most of the exhibits were mainly text and there wasn't all that much to grab your attention. I would still recommend going if you have time. If you are short of time there are many other exhibitions and museums.

we stumbled upon this and thought oo this place looks interesting .. We weren't wrong! The staff where super friendly. The layout of the building was great really modern and accessible. I particularly loved the pipe cleaner peace art! I thought that was a genius idea in which me and my friend spent more than enough time creating inspiring pieces.... More

There are different exhibitions at any given time most recently photographic exhibit was fascinating different themes. History of previous winners not particularly interesting or exciting. Explanation as to the last winner was of interest. You can purchase a card giving entry as many times as you want. There was also a quiz for kids sadly mine found itbas dull as... More

Too bad the young one didn't like the activity trail. No one likes dishwater! Still, thanks for visiting and thanks for taking time to review. We'll just have to work hard to insert some dynamite into the exhibitions for the future:) More

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
