Learn about ideas that changed the world at Nobel Museum. The museum celebrates the legacy and recipients of the world's most prestigious award, the Nobel Prize. Explores the laureates' achievements through guided tours, interactive exhibits, films, and artifacts. Each laureate is asked to donate one item of personal importance--ranging from a microscope to a bicycle--to the museum collection. The museum also tells the story of the founder of the prize, Sweden's own Alfred Nobel. Be sure to look at the bottoms of the chairs in the cafe, which laureates have signed. The museum is inside the city's former stock exchange building, along with the Swedish Academy and Nobel Library.

  • If you have the time stop by it is interesting. It is a small museum which lists all the nobel winners and brief history of what they did. There are some interactive displays which are neat. 
  • All Nobel Prizes except the Peace Prize are awarded in Stockholm and although small and somewhat crowded, the museum manages to give a good overview of the history of the prize and Alfred Nobel. Inter...  read more »

  • Smaller than expected but a great place anyway. We showed up when they had an exhibit of past winners holding sketches of their work. It was great to see their personalities displayed like this. While you're there, look up! There is a track of sorts carrying pictures and did bits about them. Look up when you check in and you can see the bulk of them queued up to wait their turn to go around. The souvenir shop has a plethora of books by the winners and other great things to bring home. Granted, I'm a science dork and so this was like my visiting the NHL or Rock and Roll Halls of Fame.
  • Invite yourself to be curious about the world and take a respite from the bustle of the city to expand your perspectives. At 5:15pm they have a free lecture in the cafe on a laureate and they're happy to answer any of your questions. This museum was informative without being overwhelming, and also conveniently provides a good escape from the sun.
  • A beautiful place with good informative heritage. Worth Visiting if you're in Gamlastan.
  • The museum is somewhat small and focuses a on the Nobel laureats i.e. the receiver of the price and on Nobel himself. Every stand provided a lot of information. When I arrived I happend to come to the right time to join a guided tour (approx. 30 minutes). What the guid was telling was very interesting. He was able to summarize must of the stuff which was exhibited. If you're able to, join one!
  • The Nobel Museum in Gamla Stan is a must visit for kids and adults alike. The museum has interesting artefacts and stories related to the Noble laureate and their work. Most of the exhibits have audio/video component to them and thereby create an interactive setting. The museum offers free guided tours. In case the guided tour is full, the visitors have an option of borrowing an earphone and listening to a audio guides on their smart phone. The souvenir shop is also quite interesting. The museum is quite small with few displays. However, there are plans of relocating the museum to a larger venue.
