  • That was nice to visit the Nobel Peace Center and learn more about all these people who got this prize but maybe tell about how and when the Nobel Price was "created" that would be nice  more »
  • Great exhibit on the Peace Prize winner of 1935, Carl von Ossietzky and how protested about what was going on in Germany at that time. Had not heard of him before but learned a lot about him. Self gui...  more »
  • We hear about the Nobel Peace prize, but it's history and the mission of the center are very interesting. It's a half-day visit and worth the effort. Get an Oslo pass and it pays for itself with the C...  more »

  • I cannot describe my feeling when I was visiting Nobel peace center. I recommend when you visit there , beside looking at the pictures and listening to audio materials , read carefully sentences that have been written on the walls. When I was there , the pictures were about Syrian kids of the war , I couldn't control my emotions. It was so sad.
  • I would have liked to get an introduction of the beginning/ background of the Nobel prize, Albert Nobel himself, etc. Also, it could be a bit more interactive; I loved the exhibition with the tablets on the 2 floor and the section for the refugees, but I felt that the whole museum was about Carl von Ossietzky, who won the prize in 1935, the Tunisian quartet in 2016 and the situation with the refugees, which I found very interesting but for 100 NOK I can read in depth about it at home. It could also be bigger!
  • Wonderful, interesting museum. Worth a visit if you are in Oslo and have time. Also very close to Aker Brygge- one of Oslos nicest areas.
  • What this place stands for is great, but they need a better way to highlight what people have achieved. A picture and strapping beneath people's names would be a good start.
  • A must visit place in Oslo. Stop after to their cafe to have some cafe au lait and something to much. The cafe au lait was one of the best ones I've ever had. The decoration is awesome!
