“Make time for this”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

I visited this museum as it was free and close to a team stop. However so glad I did make time for it. The mission and message it gives you is very uplifting and worth listening to. It's free with the Oslo Pass and very close to the City Hall.

“Museum with a Mission”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

The Nobel Peace Center is a museum, but you get a sense of mission with the Peace Center. The most memorable display was one where all of the winners of the Peace Prize has a short biographical note. The Peace Center does have a fee, but it is free with the Oslo Card.

“Do not underestimate the value of this experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

The building is small and unimposing as it sits down near the harbor. It is definitely worth a visit and you can easily spend an hour to an hour and a half visiting the displays. We had the city card and that covered admission to the center. The exhibits focused on the prize, its' originator, its' recipients and the cause of World Peace. We were there in September and the presentation was very interesting and informative. I enjoyed reading all the names, seeing the faces and searching for recipients from our country. They had a nice gift shop and a cafe.

“Cafe was good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

THere are not many things to do in Oslo and Nobel Peace Centre is definitely one of the main attractions. We were there on sunny August afternoon, so decided to have our lunch at the cafe's patio. Food was quite good, the ambiance was excellent. Service was good too. Overall pleasant experience.

“Quite interesting, but also quite small”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

We popped in here while waiting to get a mini-cruise round the fjord. It's an interesting enough place to stop off but the day we were here they were closing at two to re-open at 8pm for the opening of a new exhibition about food around the world, which wasn't visible at the time, so there wasn't all that much for us to see.

The technology of some of the exhibits was really interesting to see but the content didn't captivate me as much as it maybe could have.

The front desk guy was hilarious and friendly - and gave us a big discount on entry as we could only see half of it and only had about an hour to look. To be honest, 40 minutes was about all it took for us to wander around, but I imagine that would be different if we'd been able to get into the new exhibition.

There was a school party in when we were there too so it was a little noisier than you'd expect in a musuem (though they were very well behaved, I should add!)

Probably worth visiting if there's an exhibition on that you really want to see, not sure it's worth the entrance fee just for the permanent exhibitions.
