  • We didn,t plan it,so we just went into the reseption.You need to plan,and must buy tickets. I will do it some time  more »
  • Go if you're interested genuinely otherwise it's a bit boring for the younger kids. You will have to take one of the site buggies too as you can't take your own pram. Lists of all the historic winners...  more »

  • 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.
  • The next stop after we visited Frogner Park was lunch in a Chinese restaurant. Situated at Oslo City Hall, also, a walking distance away from Noble Peace Center, only 10 minutes, just 10 minutes to view the center from the distance. An arena where culture and politics merge to promote involvement, debate and reflection on topics such as war, peace and conflict resolution and where the Nobel Peace Prize award ceremony (since 1901) takes place every 10 December to coincide with Alfred Nobel's death.
  • Not very big. You can see it in less than an hour. Lots of reading. I'm not a big museum person but thought this would be a bit more interesting and provide some insight on the criteria and selection process of the winners but it didn't.
  • Small enough to get around in a reasonable amount of time. Interesting exhibits and very informative pamphlets. NOK100 entry for adults.
  • It's alright. You're not allowed to take your own buggy with you. You need to leave it there. Basic exhibition up several flights of stairs (there is a lift though).
