We unfortunately could not go inside as it was being prepared for the Nobel peace prize being awarded in a couple of days but we enjoyed the magnificent murals on each side of the galleries leading to the entrance

A rather auster looking building from the outside. Very unimpressive. However go in and all changes. Nobel peace prize presented there this week. Area around building quite deserted
