Take time to visit this spot to learn about the Noble Peace Prize. A interesting museum about the history of the prize and a interactive room featuring the recipients.

Good place to visit if you visit Oslo. Its a meuseum which exhibits the work done by all the nobel prize winners. Its located at the prime location, Aker Bryge. If you are traveling via crusie ship , this should be the first public attraction to visit. There are lots of eateries around this place.

I like the theme, and they have displays you read and then make your own ethical choice. Not a large museum; good if you have a couple days to stay, otherwise not a must-see.

Exactly as described, this place provides facts and information on some of the fascinating Nobel peace prize winners and some of the causes they have fought for. A current exhibition also highlights the plight of Syrian refugee children which is moving and thought-provoking

The Nobel Peace Award is given every year on the 10th of December in Oslo. If you follow this, and love history it is a must stop. We spent about an hour. Very well done.

Visited here yesterday and had an amazing time. The Ossietzky exhibition is profoundly moving and very humbling in its honesty and his clarity of purpose as a whistle blower on the rearmament of Germany by the Nazis. The whole Center is very impressive and a must for anyone who has an interest in peace, history or philosophy. Do visit if... More

This is one of the places you can purchase the Oslo Pass. The space is pretty small and to be honest nothing seems to have the surprise factor.

Visited as it was covered by the Oslo Pass and it was next to the marvellous Food Market and Ferry Terminal. Appeared to me to be geared up for those who love modern art and the hippy culture. Very hip, if you like that type of place. The "light room" on the second floor was not bad and very calming.... More

The ground floor of the peace centre told the story of the Carl Von Ossietzky in a very engaging way, while upstairs were more modern subjects such as refugees and the Arab Spring. The room showing peace prize winners on iPads which gave information as you got close to the screen was very well set out. The Nobel peace centre... More

It is always good to see the history of the Nobel Peace prize and my favourite part was seeing all of the past winners and displayed in a very cool and futuristic manner. Also the most recent winners- the 2015 Tunisia quartet, was an interesting story to understand and appreciate.
