Not a place to see, but a place to be.

There's really not much to see in this place. Like someone said "How do you put an idea in a museum?" It's a wonderful place to BE though. There's inspiration in the walls. (And... read more

There's really not much to see in this place. Like someone said "How do you put an idea in a museum?" It's a wonderful place to BE though. There's inspiration in the walls. (And underneath the chairs.) It's so great to see knowledge being celebrated like this! It's so rare. The guided tour is a must, I think. And it's... More

Not sure why some people find it boring, maybe if the wonderful achievements of our fellow men & women across all races colours & creeds are not your cup of tea then maybe so, but otherwise a definite must. Not a large museum but technically well set up with easy to source information and great displays. While we were there... More

I was hoping for detailed exhibits of many (most?) past laureates and their accomplishments. There were a handful of these, as well as a few interactive exhibits (10 or so) detailing particularly notable accomplishments (Marie Curie's instruments to detect radiation, etc.). There was also a small but well-done exhibit describing Nobel himself, his life, personal accomplishments, and will executed upon... More

Significant people. Significant inventions. Limited museum shop. Somewhat boring presentation. Difficult to get the essence of each award. Please work on presentation. A bit hard rock cafe feel with the random objects on display, connected to significant events.

A lot of thought has gone into curating this museum, each of the displays is thoughtful and you could spend 30 minutes here or hours. There is so much to see and learn.

Museum is very small and the guided tour is mainly talking about the history of it all. You don't miss much if you are short of time and skip it.

I visited the Nobel museum on a rainy Friday. It is situated in the heart of the Old Town. I was right on time for a guided tour in English which took around 40 minutes. The guide provided very interesting details around the life of Alfred Nobel and the Nobel price. The museum provides an overview of all the Nobel... More

Within the confines of this historical neighborhood, you will find a modest yet modern museum memorializing Nobel winners and their works. If you are pressed for time, skip this. If you have time to kill and the weather is killing you, check it out.

Here is a place that is worth a quick look if in the neighborhood- but i would not go out of my way to visit. Rather pedestrian exhibits on previous winners- nothing you could not get out of a book.

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.
