It's been a while since I was there, but I recall it beinf very well organized and user-friendly. I think it has all the exhibits in both Norwegian and English. Very informative and inspiring.

Could be better

The photos exhibition about Ethiopia was interesting and inspiring. The reception gave us a game on a paper. The game started on the second floor. It was about finding Alfred Nobel's will by finding clues in different rooms through a crossword that lead to a password to unlock a safe and discover the will. We enjoyed it. Next to the rooms, there's a dark room with some kind of electronic candles to honor all the people who got the peace Nobel prize. I was shocked to see Barack Obama's picture. Personally I don't think he deserves it because during his 8 years mandate, he involved his country in 7 wars worldwide so he should get the war price. Right next to this, there's a room for kids to play and read books. It's not worth the price for so little to see.

Fab way to learn history of Albert Nobel
Aug 2020 • Family
Brilliant museum to give an overview of Albert Nobel and how the Nobel Prizes came to be.
Super area for kids to find clues and learn about Albert.
Lovely area to learn a little about each Peace Prize Winner over the decades.
Located in central Oslo ... definitely worth a visit whilst in the city.

What a waste of money and a waste of time!

Nothing to see or do here. Take a photo of the outside of the building and jog on. Two floors. On first is a badly put display about the 2019 peace prize winner from Ethiopia. Floor 2 is a rubbish history of Nobel featuring family members in drag. Wipe your feet on a mat and a bloke in drag talks to you - Alfred Nobel’s mother. The highlight of tvs museum is walking through loads of cheap Clas Ohlsen LED lights with the previous winners photos attached. 150 NOK or 12.50 Pounds wasted for a 20 minute walkabout. Save your money and go to Bygdoy. See the Viking ships and Fram. Avoid this. It’s crap

Surprised by the opportunity for a picture with the Champions League trophy

In all seriousness the upstairs was both inspiring (previous winners) and upsetting given the current themed exhibition on rape as an act of war/genocide

Disappointed
Jan 2020 • Solo
There appears to be renovations to the building currently so you can’t clearly see the building- not that it really matters as it’s just a building. The disappointment begins when you’re actually inside. I felt as though it was peddling a political agenda rather than educating people. The exhibits were incredibly boring and didn’t stimulate me mentally in the slightest. If you are hoping to gain greater insight into the history of the award and what processes are used then I wouldn’t bother. Such a shame as I had high hopes for this place.

Underwhelming
Oct 2019
Prior to arriving in Oslo, visiting the Nobel Peace Center was my top priority. Well - after finishing the tour in 15 minutes, I felt really guilty. So, I walked through the museum again (and took advantage of the clean bathrooms) to see what I missed, which wasn't much. The iPad displays for each of the winners were informative, but not all of the iPads functioned properly.

I did buy a few postcards in the gift shop - I passed on the Yasser Arafat postcard, figuring the US Postal Service wouldn't deliver it.

The Peace Center would be a good place to bring kids, who would like the global warming exhibit on the 1st floor. My disappointment in the museum is two-fold: (1) for such a 'prominent' award, the content and layout at the Nobel Peace Center doesn't compare to the 'importance' of the award; (2) too many political overtones, both with the museum, but also with several of the past recipients of the award.

The Nobel Museum
Sep 2019
‘Ello chaps! Of all the world renowned Nobel prizes, one is given in Oslo. The Nobel Peace Price. The Nobel Museum, located in the heart of downtown Oslo near the waterfront, is more than an event venue, it is also a museum, putting the efforts of past peace prize recipients on full display. There is a small cafe and gift shop also located at the museum.

Surprisingly good!

My wife decided this would be worth a visit, I was unsure. But actually it was worth it. There was an exhibition on Ethiopia and it's interesting new leader, I knew very little before, now I'm better informed.

A good reason for visiting Oslo is coming to this place. If you can take the time read about the recipients. There are lots of interesting stories.
