I really enjoyed the history of Nobel awards, and lovely cafe attached, and very reasonable price for snacks and drinks too. This year focuses on children and had joint winners, the main ground exhibit focused on their work, I was shocked at some of the stats, how many children are still being exploited or denied education, so it was great...

The Peace Center is small with a large display on the current years recipients. In 2015, I must say I cried a little as I looked at the display (go to find out who and why). The best part is the room with the quotes form all recipients that activates as someone walks near each one and plays a musical... More

Just a walking distance from our hotel at the heart of the city, near to City Hall, Oslo's Port and among other attractions. There is a gift shop at the entrance.

Located right in the heart of Olso, easy access and the #12 tram stops right there. Worth a visit to see all those that have made peace their endeavours.

Every year, the world renowned Nobel peace prize is awarded, at Oslo, to a single organisation or person who has contributed to world peace. There are exhibits showing some of the prominent winners and how the nomination process is like. Pretty informative museum, and although small, the stories were inspiring and worth reading on. This museum is one of the... More

The Nobel Peace Prize is not something I knew a huge amount about before coming to Oslo, but this place was really interesting and well worth a visit. A little expensive for what it is, the pricing is in line with the rest of Oslo. They have a unique exhibition each year from the winner of the prize as well... More

Don't expect to see art here. This is history. You will learn about struggles, fights, revolutions, wars, but also about one person, or a group of person, or an organization, that contributed to make this a better world. It's a bit too expensive I must say, and certainly not the first thing I would see in Oslo. If you have... More

I had seen the BBC reportage before, so there was not that much more for me. Interesting is the room with all the laureats, many of whom I didn't know.

I loved the fact that all the winners since 1901 is displayed individually with photo and their brief story contributions for the mankind under soft lights. Ambiance was so peaceful. I also loved a wall dedicated to Martin Luther King Jr. because he was the receipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, the year I was born :) Who... More
