The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
How to get there
  • Gamla stan • 4 min walk
  • Slussen • 8 min walk

In the most beautiful area of the city
Jul 2021
Easy access, one of the most viewed museum in the city and perhaps the most famous. You can find it in the central Gamla Stan a place that all tourists and sure swedish people come to take photos. In the area you can find cafes, restaurants and tourist shops a little bit expensive.

V interesting museum. Lots of information included in an interesting way by using an app on your phone instead of an audio guide. Interesting films too and as I could not finish seeing everything I wanted they gave me a complimentary ticket to return

It’s a must if you enjoy history of the Noble Prize. Very informative about how, when & why people won the Nobel prizes. Perfect for teenagers as well, it gets one thinking of how we can contribute for a greater good.

visit it... :)

growing up in Bangladesh, since childhood I used to read history of science and scientists. Nobel Prize may not have any value while developing your tech , but it surly feels good to see your favourite scientist receiving a Nobel prize, as it is one of the greatest recognition in the world.

I was visiting Stockholm all alone and i felt a bit emotional to be there.

situated at the very centre of the old stockholm s=city, also called Gamla stan. Ticket price is moderate, takes around 1 to 2 hours time to visit, if you are reading all the information.

there is a souvenir shop inside. I bought 2 key chains. :)

During Chrismas eve you'll find the Chrismas market right in front of the museum.

Maybe not worth the trip

The Nobel prize has been around since 1895, over 100 years. There are 5 prizes, and sometimes the prize is divided among multiple people. So conservatively speaking there would be at least 500 recipients in 100 years. But for example, the Nobel prize in chemistry for 2019 was shared by 3 people, and there are other examples. This means there are perhaps many more than 500 recipients. This does not include nominees who have declined the Nobel. There are some, and they are still worthy of recognition.

The Museum was smaller than I thought it would be, with such a long history. approximately 1/3 of the museum was dedicated to MLK and the civil rights movement of the 1960's. I don't disagree that MLK was a remarkable man, but is rather over represented in the museum, with some of the exhibit simply pictures of protestors and the civil rights movement in the US at the time (1960's). Quite a lot happened before this, and after.

The main room in the museum is dedicated to video kiosks, where you can watch videos about Nobel related material. Honestly, I can get that on Youtube, I don't have to visit Stockholm.

There is a small theater with selected film, and there are some exhibits of memorabilia such as a hand-written letter by Albert Einstein, but overall it was quite a let down.

I live an hour away, so this was not a major excursion for me, but since I am here in Sweden I thought I would go, it was on my list of "must see" things, I have now checked it off. I last visited during the Summer of 2019 but the drop down menu did not have that as an option.

Pretentious and childish
Sep 2020 • Solo
To me it seemed a pretentious space with not much substance for cultural enrichment. Can appear at first interesting, because of its modern-type museum approach, but in essence is no more than a "wiki" wanna be on a touch screen. Could have been done more with such a huge herritage.

If you were to read everything you could be there all day.

Everything is set out around the building and they have an interesting gift shop.

It is in a good location.

We found the Nobel Prize museum very uplifting, especially during these troubled times. The museum does an excellent job of making complex, scientific concepts accessible. Its exhibits reveal how people have and continue to work for the betterment of our world. It was fun to see some of the objects that past prize winners have donated and to read why they gave that object. It also was enlightening to review who has won the Peace and Literature prizes through the decades. We definitely recommend visiting.
