Great exhibit on the Peace Prize winner of 1935, Carl von Ossietzky and how protested about what was going on in Germany at that time. Had not heard of him before but learned a lot about him. Self guided tour although there is one English tour a day it seems in the early afternoon.

We hear about the Nobel Peace prize, but it's history and the mission of the center are very interesting. It's a half-day visit and worth the effort. Get an Oslo pass and it pays for itself with the Center and a couple of museums.

Filled with info about all Nobel Peace Prize winners, this Center is worth the time of anyone who has interest and concern about human rights. One floor is devoted to a prior winner who becomes the subject of an in-depth exhibit. Ideal for a rainy day, and for younger adults and older children! The adjoining cafe is a good place... More

Wonderful place to bring children/adults to make them think about peace and its importance in our crazy and complexed world. It was only a relatively small exhibition, but interesting to read about winners of this prestigious award through the decades to present day.

We visited this museum out of curiosity and whilst there is potential in the museum to provide the visitor with some useful insight we left thinking that it's difficult to sell peace. We found the exhibits interesting and thoughtful although felt that it did not do justice to those who are named and have been rewarded for their achievements in... More

Thank you for your feedback, Ian. I find it very interesting. You do have an excellent point: "we can name the bad people in history yet struggle to name the good". Best, Adeline - Museum Educator More

Allow about 2 to 3 hours! This was so moving and well worth the entrance fee of 100NOK. Everything was explained in English and Norwegian and the staff so knowledgable.

Great concept - poor execution. It would be better if the museum gave more time/press to all recipients. The "iPad hall of winners" is awkward to navigate, not informative enough, and can only be properly enjoyed on a sparse attendance day.

Thank you for your feeback, Nancy. We're sorry your visit didn't meet your expectations. Featuring all recipients is a challenge as there are more than 100 of them, and space is limited. But I will make sure to share your feedback with the Exhibition Department, as we are already planning our next big exhibit about the history of the Nobel... More

No trip to Oslo is complete without a visit to the Nobel Peace Center. There is a gift shop which is open to everyone, if you want to go further you have to purchase a ticket.

The stories of the winners of the Peace Prize are vividly explained in this centre. The exhibition is on two floors and when we visited the whole of the ground floor is dedicated to Carl von Ossietzky who was a German pacifist who spoke out against the Nazis in the early/mid 1930's. It is a truly remarquable story not widely... More
