  • The Museum could have made the experience so much more interesting than it was and I would not recommend some to visit it.

  • We particularly liked the room with all the tablets in. Well worth a visit and it was free when we went on a Saturday. 
  • The Nobel Peace Center is a must to see while in Oslo. The exhibits are interactive and unique. It is very interesting to read about the various recipients of the Peace PRize. 
  • We all hear about the Nobel Peace Prize, but how much about it do we really know? Here is a chance to learn, at a facility operated by the committee. There are changing exhibitions of both recent and historic awardees, as well as limited information about all awardees, the committee, and about Nobel himself. This museum is a chance to expand your thinking, even if you're already positive toward the Peach Prize.
  • Nobel Peace Prize is the only Nobel prize to be presented in Norway while the other four are announced and presented in Sweden. The Centre is well displayed to introduce the history of Nobel Peace Prize, a hall of fame showing all laureates from 1901 and the in depth exhibition on the current laureate ( Tunisian National Dialogue Quartets in 2015). It is worth to spend one hour to explore this small centre. Highly recommended.
  • This brief, mostly text-based museum offers a few interactive exhibits on Nobel Peace Prize winners. Stop by if you have a spare hour. The in-the-works expansion will make this more of a must-see.
  • Great exhibitions, friendly staff, not too crowded. The shop is interesting as well. Well worth a couple hours of your time!
  • Interesting as part of the Oslo Pass, but wouldn't have paid to visit myself. Quite dry and the addition of lots of gimmicks like iPads can't stop it being rather dull.
