This museum is a great idea, and it deserves more space and a lot more funding. I am a great admirer of Dag Hammarskjöld and was incredibly delighted that there was even one room of a museum dedicated to him. Really, there should be a full museum, but this was still enjoyable. They even have magnets with Hammarskjöld quotes! It made me very happy, but understandably not everyone might be as interested. Still, you should give it a shot, even if only because entrance is free and it's not time-consuming to visit at all. The exhibitions contain great messages about perseverance and believing in peace efforts and seeing the good in humanity.

We visited this exhibition on a sunday afternoon. There were a few sections. One that was particularly interesting to me was about the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

I found The House of Peace very informative, and uplifting. Of course, I'm odd in that Dag Hammarskjold and Raoul Wallenberg were among my heroes as a youth. It's not a fun visit, but they've done a nice job of gathering and displaying information on human rights efforts. I didn't have a child with me, but think it could work well for kids also. I also find its location in a war castle significant. For this museum, bring yourself and a willingness to be reflective.

A very interesting museum showing the darker side of humans . It talks about genocide and other world related themes. Also an exhibition on Raul Wallenberg. Recommended, especially as the entrance is free

If you have much time to spend in Uppsala it's OK. As the Free Entrance make it worth a short visit. but if you're not very interested in Dag Hammarsköld and UN it's not much to see.
