Nobel Museum, Stockholm

#2 of 14 in Childrens Museums in Sweden
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. Nobel Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Stockholm Edition.

  • It must certainly have been a hard task to pack the amount of information available for this museum (biographical details about Alfred Nobel and the stories - sometimes peculiar - of the Nobel laureates) into a comparatively small space as the entrance hall of the Swedish Academy and a couple of adjacent rooms. It is therefore even more rewarding to see that this task has been accomplished in an elegant and yet efficient way, with showcases along the walls, but also arranged on their own stands along the middle of the main corridor, as well as using the overhead conveyor belt of a former newspaper publisher. Also, eventually, there must have been some additional room left for the curators, because the end of the central corridor hosts an exhibition of practical scientific aimed in particular to children and young people, and the additional cherry of two small-sized projection theatres with constantly running films about Nobel laureates. The museum provides a wealth of historical information, and - also thanks to the web-based audio-guides - it is a pleasure to walk through.
  • It's one of the must visit places at Stockholm. Very interesting design and building itself. Of course it's nice to find an info about Baku, Azerbaijan too, where Nobel brothers involved with oil industry. But it was a little information.
  • If you want to pay 120SEK and have it worth your while, go to the Royal Palace instead. Upon entry you have access to four, rather small, rooms (and the giftshop) of which the first is dedicated only to children and second plays the same rather uninteresting movie over and over.
  • Pretty boring museum. The information is of course really interesting but you could basically just read it all on Wikipedia at home instead. Not much to see at the museum.
  • This is a testament to the best of what we all can achieve as a human race. At its best it will give you food for thought. If you want your museums dumbed down - go elsewhere
