The Nobel Museum, Stockholm

3.3
Learn about ideas that changed the world at The 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. The Nobel Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Stockholm Edition.

  • I felt so honoured just being there. This place is packed with information on all the Novel laureates to-date along with data on how the winners are actually selected. I went on a free guided tour which is really useful if you want to understand this process better. They have a small cafe here. Entry fee applicable. Credit cards accepted. Located in the old town which is an attraction in itself. Must see.
  • An inspiring venue for the aspiring scientist! Has a great cafe to binge out on Swedish deserts and the gift shop has an excellent collection of items to give to your little scientist at home. The chocolate Nobel Prize medal is a great and reasonably priced item for giving anyone who actively follows science.
  • It doesn't stand up to the name to be called as Nobel museum. There are literally hundreds of Nobel Laureates in each field and what they display is just one or two in each field. I mean, you want to inspire the youngsters and still you want the elderly to have their attention. Is this so difficult to achieve given today's technology for a place to be called Nobel Museum. I went there with lot of expectations, to see and learn cool and interesting things about how the scientists came upon their ideas and how much difference their contribution has made to the world. An idea for example: imagine to eliminate few Nobel winning discoveries/inventions from the world and recreate it to show the importance of those discoveries/inventions. Just setting up equipment for photoelectric effect doesn't make anyone realize it's importance in our lives, for any observer for that matter. I hope to see much better version worth its name.
  • Not my museum - I don’t understand the museum concept. Some parts are really interesting. I think it’s good stop to warm up with the STOCKHOLM Pass
  • I could have spent a whole day there! Really nice for those who are into technology and engineering. Although I would say that it is not a very big museum and you have to read the screens in order to really have information about the Nobel lauréates.
