I liked the way they have displayed the various Nobel winners with lights you can illuminate to read about them. I also liked the various exhibitions they keep doing on the ground floor - the one on living conditions in Mumbai was shocking even for someone who has lived many years in Mumbai as myself!

The museum is located on the waterfront so is very easy to get to. It costs about £9 per person and is well worth a visit. There are lots of interactive displays meaning you can read about the information you find interesting. About an hour is plenty, so good to pop into if the weather gets a bit grim!

At the Peace Center they often have different photo expositions or themed events that focus on important topics, usually very well executed. We went to see the photo exposition "What the world eats", which was a fascinating documentation of what families around the world eat in a week, and the comparable costs of living. I ended up buying the book... More

I wasn't sure what to expect but the Nobel Peace Center was excellent. I learnt so much about Nobel, his Peace Prize and the recipients. A beautiful place to contemplate the meaning of peace.

From their web site it's hard to tell whether the museum is exciting for children (10 and 7), but it actually is. We all had a great time, and the gift shop really has some unique items.

This was definately one of the highlights on our trip to Oslo! When we were there they had three exhibitions: one called "What the World Eats", one about chemical weapons and the third about past Nobel Peace Prize Winners. The one about eating was very interesting and they had also material to take home. The Exhibition about chemical weapons was... More

If you are in Oslo you must check out this museum. Very informative and beautiful displays. I especially loved the current food exhibit on the first floor, it was an eye opener. Lots of posters and information sheets that you can take home throughout the museum, which I loved (I hand a pocket full by the time I left). You... More

I found this museum generally underwhelming. It is highly interactive, with lots of touch screens and videos. There was also a fascinating exhibit that showcased multiple EU photographers, who had taken photos from their home countries. So while the museum is full of interesting bits of information, it ultimately lacks tangible pieces of primary history. I did not encounter any... More

When you ask most people what they know of Oslo, the most common answer they'd know of is that the Nobel Peace Prize is presented there. In honor of that, the Nobel Peace Center has been erected to celebrate the recipients of this prestigious prize. Entry into this museum is free if you have an Oslo Pass. You'll probably spend...
