The museum presents an overview and elaboration on both the founder of the Nobel price and all its Laureates. In addition, it highlights a certain part of history on the Nobel price in a separate exhibition. Very inspirational and well organised. Must see if you're in Oslo

I wasn't sure what to expect, and how long I would spend at the museum, and although I was probably expecting more, I enjoyed the exhibits nonetheless. It starts with the ground floor exhibit on 1 specific Peace Prize winner from the '30's, and a controversial one at that - a very detailed story board walk through his life and... More

A little recent history is necessary to anyone! You will see something special that made a man for humanity! Children visit for free, and shops will attract the entrance.

A quick hop in and out on your way to Aker Bygge. It all depends on what's on show inside. A nice building none the less.

Very informative and interesting exposition. It was better than expected. We thought it would be just a drop in and out thing, instead we spent almost 3 hours inside...Lots of facts and history inside, worth every line we read. I would totally recommend it.

Visited today and was blown away by how moving it was. The initial exhibition was about a laureate I hadn't even heard of until this morning and was considered a traitor by Adolf Hitler was was very much made to suffer for his cause. There was also very thought provoking exhibitions on issues in Tunisia which I was very much... More

I visited this museum just trying to pass time before a concert. I wasn't expecting much, but in the end I was pleasantly surprised with how interesting this museum was. The exhibit was on Carl Ossietzky and it was quite moving and informative. I would recommend this for adults, but not children. If you show your ISIC card there is... More

You should go here... because you should. Children won't find this a whole bunch of fun but I learned a lot about the institution and how it does its good works. Given the troubles the world may face, we should understand the good. ...And where else can you buy a chocolate Nobel medal ?
