The building is located in Aker Brygge, in the harbour, just a few meters from the City Hall. Since this is one of the most important institutions in the world, I expected a much more impressive building. Visits are allowed for free and there are...More

The Norwegian Nobel Institute is worth the visit if you are interested in the Nobel Prizes awarded annually and presented in Oslo in November each year. The building itself is worthy of the visit too - very beautiful.

This building is absolutely gorgeous, inside and out. The message it sends is amazing and to walk upon the floors that Mother Theresa and other highly influential people did is an incredible experience. I would recommend this attraction to anyone.

This is a nice building, inside and out - of some interest from a tourist point of view - but mainly a library for research. I passed by as I was walking from the hotel to the centre.
