We just did a quick trip inside and decided against paying all the money for information which we could have just got on internet. Nothing very impressive about the building either!

We were very interested in seeing the Nobel Center on our visit to Oslo, but found it not to be what we were expecting. The whole lower floor was an exhibit to one winner from the past, which I assume changes periodically. The exhibit was interesting, but extremely text heavy and crudely constructed. On the next level, we were then... More

A few interesting exhibits and history to learn. You probably do not have to spend too much time at this place.

There's a lot to learn in the different sections of this nicely located museum close to a section of the harbour with more museums and cafés. We chose to spend more time on the "Hope over fear" exhibition about Colombias peace prize winner Juan Manuel Santos featuring Mads Nissen's stunning medium format photos from the conflict and the work of...

I have always been a huge fan of the Nobel Peace Prize and anything to do with humanitarianism, so I was really looking forward to visiting the museum. But it was a bit of a letdown. It is a couple of floors with different types of exhibits which was great, but there was simply too much to read and it... More

The Nobel Peace Centre is quite an interesting place, but there are many exhibits which are accompanied by large paragraphs of reading. Would benefit from some more interactive displays, but was free with the Oslo Pass, so worth it.

We loved this museum and spent several hours here. Embarrassingly we had no idea that the nobel prize was judged in Norway nor of its history. It was great to fill in the gaps of our knowledge. Teenagers and adults alike enjoyed it.

The exhibits were thought-provoking and well-worth the hour or so to tour the Center. A guided tour was included in the admission and worth taking. There were special rooms with activities for children, a tech-tool to search and learn about past Peace Prize winners, videos, audio headsets, photo exhibits to learn about peace initiatives around the world, a highlighted past...

The Nobel Peace Center is a very interesting place, where both children and adults will attend an educational journey where they would learn a lot of important stuff about some of the most valuable freedom fighters off all time.
