  • Great space. Wish I could have stayed a little longer. They also had some amazing educational games in their gift shop. That was cool.
  • This is one of my absolute favourite places to visit in Oslo, and I have visited a great many places in Oslo. The exhibitions are intelligent, thought-provoking, inspiring, and compassionate. The staff are very friendly and the prices are relatively cheap. One could easily spend an entire day here without managing to experience everything it has to offer.
  • I wanted to visit this place long time back and had chance to go there. It's very close to the cruise terminal and really feel very peaceful and inspired by seeing the history of dedicated people . Every one should visit this place at least once
  • Wonderful museum with interesting and well thought-out exhibits. There is a nice gift shop with lots of books - these are purchases you would actually give as gifts! The permanent exhibits give you much more information on the Peace Prize and laureates, and the temporary exhibitions are also great. There is a bathroom that can be used for free even if you don't purchase museum entry (go in through the gift shop), but I would really recommend giving yourself a couple hours to walk around! Also very easily accessible - it's impossible to miss on the harbour and walkable from almost anywhere in Oslo because it's so central.
  • Good Archiving. Very inspiring place. Do have a look at the Museum store as well

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
