Unless you have at least a modertae interest in science, literature or politics and know some of the laureates, you will feel lost. The museum itself is small, but has a lot information on every single Nobel Prize winner. The best part was an exhibition of photos where the laureates had to draw what they got the prize for. The...

I enjoyed my visit here, but the museum was relatively small - albeit in a lovely building, it felt modern and shiny! The exhibit at the time was a photography exhibit of nobel winners with a drawing of their own work, and a brief interview. This was interesting! Although it did highlight how so many are men. There were interactive... More

It is good to enter this museum for a while, if only to discover who won the Nobel Prize in the year you were born! Every Nobel Prize Winner has his place in the museum, where they are all hanging on the ceiling. I was specially moved in the little movie theatre where I could see two of my personal... More

Women and people of color will have a very different experience of this museum than a member of the dominant gender and race. It's hard not to notice how many white men have won Nobel prizes. Putting aside that fact, the museum does a good job with what they have. There are some very nice interactive digital exhibits whereby one... More

Great architecture in the building itself. Nice displays in the rooms to the right. Was underwhelmed by the rotating, hanging displays of each Nobel prize winner.

Worth a visit and gives a worthy message about the purpose of the Nobel prize and the history behind it. Interesting set up however you would have to read a lot of the information to spend much time in here

We enjoyed learning more about the Nobel Prize and seeing the interviews with Nobel Laureates on the continuous-loop theatre showings. The gift shop was an especially nice resource for unique souvenirs.

This museum is not the biggest, but for 100 SEK (even less for seniors) you get 1 - almost unlimited hours of fun/education. The ticket price also includes a 30 minute guided tour (not obligatory). The museum shows a limited amount of historical objects (Nobel medals, Nobel diplomas, a replica of Alfred Nobel's will, ...) and combines this with multi... 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.
