A neat compilation of the history of Alfred Nobel and the Nobel prize. Very well-maintained, and there were lots of hands-on and interactive stations where visitors and children could learn about the concept of the Nobel prize and past experiments/findings by Nobel laureates. Most of the information, however, was probably available online with some research, and some items that once... More

This is the museum dedicated to the history of Nobel prize and its holders. Try to join a guided tour ( they are free and hours are indicated in the entrance) in order to get a full glimpse of it.

Be aware the museum opens at 11AM. This makes it necessary to plan your trip. At 11:15 there is a guided tour which was interesting but not essential. The museum explains the history of the price, the history of Alfred Nobel, and current laureates contributions. There is also a display of every Nobel laureate which rotates above your head. A...

Pretty limited. It gives a taste for what it is all about and that's about it. Women at the que were disinterested and worried more about shopping online then waiting on customers. Was worth the money? No. Would I go back? No.

A fascinating and informative museum with very innovative displays - like the overhead cableway with moving posters of more than 900 Nobel laureates, and the chairs in the Bistro, each signed by a Nobel Laureate (you have to overturn it to find the signature!). The museum also has on display personal possessions of many of the awardees and there are... More

If you've ever wondered what the Nobel prizes were about, then this should cover them. It's quite small with a few interesting exhibits, but the free talk/tour made the visit for us.

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... More

What is a visit to Stockholm's amazing Gamla Stan without a visit to the famous Nobel Museum, housed in a marvelous 18th century building? We enjoyed the 'Cultures of Creativity' exhibition in this small and easy to navigate museum which also includes a nice little bistro & museum gift shop. We learned many interesting tidbits about the history of the... More

The museum tells Alfred Nobel's story and the Nobel prize winners' stories in the best way I could have possibly imagined. The gift shop helps one take away a piece of the museum, and the restaurant experience inside was also memorable. I left the place inspired. Watch out for the next Nobel Prize winner. lol!

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
