as with many of these interesting museums in large cities throughout the world, it has permanent and contemporary exhibits. we were very fortunate to visit when the contemporary exhibit was on a man that we had never heard of but was extremely influential in exposing Hitler's ambitions long before he invaded Poland in 1939 - Carl von Ossietzky. I will... More

The museum has changing exhibits as well as the permanent featuring the various winners of the prize. When there, the major exhibit focused on the German newspaper editor who warned of the impending danger of the Nazi regime, was later imprisoned and died of illness incurred when in prison. It also had an exhbit about the most recent winner. .

There is a free guided tour. (Don't remember the exact time.) One staff here was very kind and recommended me some books at the gift shop. Also, I could have a nice conversation with him while I was waiting for the guided tour. The exhibition was informative and interesting. Worth a visit!

You almost have to visit this place if you are in Oslo. It s far better than the Nobel Museum in Stockholm. The museum is in the harbor area where there are so many places to visit. All in all a good place to go.

A unique visit to such a centre that you hear and read about. Interesting to read some of the descriptions and views of winners. Follow up by visiting City Hall where the prizes are awarded. There is a cost to enter the museum.

There had been an interesting exhibition on Carl Von Ossietzky who won the prize in 1935 and it gave a fantastic account of his life leading up to and after the award and it had been really informative. They also had a nice set up upstairs where they have all the winners on view and when you step near the... More

Visited the Nobel Peace centre while walking around the Oslo Marina and the experience was very humbling. The exhibitions promote peace and gives a history into the hardships of Europe during world wars.
