nice museum, around the corner from the royal palace, which details how/why this museum exists, as well as showcases the previous winners.

Very interesting museum, especially if you are interested in the sciences. There are some movies that give some good background on some of the scientists and their discoveries, and touch screens at the entrance that give you the names of all the winners by decade with information on their research, or the reason for their prize. 100 SEK to get...

It is one of these places that is really good for folks who like to read every label within the museum. There is a lot to take in and absorb which highlights the great and good of the world. Far play the place does cater for children with some interactive experiments and a special play area for them. You really... More

I expected more. Beautiful building but very small museum. Not much to see. Lot of informative texts and pictures. Nice lunch bistro. They also serve Nobel banquet ice cream.

I know, my title is funny. Haha! But really, I went in on a Wednesday, and it was free by 5pm but I was there by 4.30pm and I did not know it was free (of course, the staff won't inform you that) and I paid SEK50. Ouch. It is a small museum but very informative on the Nobel Prize... More

To look and read about some of the recipients of the Nobel Prize you feel very humble regarding the fantastic achievements they have accomplished. The Musuem is fairly small, so the layout has been designed accordingly which is a shame because I would have liked more information on the Winners to be less interactive where you had to queue to...

An interesting display of past and present Nobel Laureates...it's well done, informative, easy to get through and worth the admission. We were told by the admission clerk that in high season, it tends to be a major target for pick-pocketers, who tend to prey on unaware and trusting tourists, so when it's busy, just be cautious.

A quick little museum visit that's worth the fee, especially since the guided tour is included (and I would definitely recommend). A really interesting bit of history about Alfred Nobel as well as a place to learn about the Nobel Prizes. My favourite part would be all the donated items by laureates, which paint a picture about each recipient, either... More

It's edifying to know more about the laureates and what they have achieved for humankind and earth. The projection room is my favorite, documentaries are short and digestible. The discoveries or achievements are so surprising and inspiring that it incites further discussion and the viewer certainly takes something home with him/her to ponder. The museum cafe is also notable because... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
