Allow a few hours to take it all in. Original patents for Nobel. His Will and Testament too. Einsteins letters. Really cool. There are personal artefacts of the Dhali Lama and other Nobel Prize winners. Take it all in.

A small but very nice museum with a lot of interactive exhibits. Our two 11 years old daughters spent a good one hour inside and learned a lot about Nobel prizes in various categories. They had some scientific demonstration session during the time we visited....More

A quaint, small museum that should take about an hour to get through. I learned a ton about the history of the Nobel prize and humanity’s capacity for good.

This museum is right in the center of the Old Town. I enjoyed the way in which the presentation was set up, and the technology to present the information.

There is such a rich vein of history and human achievement untapped in this museum. There are some clever touches, but it is small and sadly lacking in coherence. More could be made of video of the winners of recent times and more to contextualise...More

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)
