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

We had a lovely stroll through the museum. If you buy a Oslo Pass, it is definitely worth going through this museum. We did this museum and then took bus 30 to Bogdyn, where we did Kon-Tiki, Fram, the Maritiem Museum and the Folkenmuseet. All very worthwhile!

The visit told us what we did not know - the Nobel Peace Prize is centred and presented in Oslo. We visited the centre immediately after arrival in Olso so as to take advantage of the short daylight. The exhibit on each Prize winner was inspiring and moving. Unfortunately we did not have a Oslo Pass as we are very... More

I have visited numerous times, and definitely fell in love! I visited initially on a family holiday in 2010 and learnt a lot. I lived in Norway as a student in 2012 and visited a few times with different friends and family that had come to visit. I found the Afghanistan exhibition very interesting and well put together, whenever i... More

We had planned to visit on Saturday, but unfortunately the temporary exhibition was shut due to an event. Not only were the tickets half price, but we also got free tickets to revisit another day - bargain!. Very interesting, well laid out and interactive show in a lovely building. Definitely worth a visit.

You can easily spend a couple of hours here taking in the temporary and permanent exhibits - many at least semi-interactive. The downstairs space was an exhibit on the effect of social media on democracy when we went in Oct 2014, which was a bit lightweight, but the OCPW one upstairs was a bit more serious, and the flipbook of...

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.
