Visit a museum dedicated to the Nobel Prize. Learn about the life of the prize’s pioneer, the winners and their creativity.

At the Nobel Museum discover the history of the Nobel Prize and learn about its creator and award winners. The museum opened in Stockholm’s Stock Exchange Building in 2001, 100 years after the first prize was awarded.

Start your visit in the exhibition dedicated to Alfred Nobel, the creator of the Nobel Prize. Read his will and discover why he bequeathed his personal assets to the foundation of an international award. Learn about his most famous creations, including dynamite and the detonator.

Look up to see rotating portraits of Nobel Laureates. These are the former prize winners, such as author Rudyard Kipling and former British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill. See how the Nobel Prize has developed since its inception in 1901. Take a visual tour through the laboratory of Marie Curie and watch the moment when Nelson Mandela walked free after 25 years in prison.

Check the museum’s website for temporary exhibitions. One example is Making the Peace, a photography exhibition by the International Peace Bureau. It showed images of people who dedicate their time to peacekeeping activities around the world.

Visit the museum’s restaurant to try Nobel Ice Cream, a dessert previously served at the Nobel Prize Banquets. Be sure to check underneath your chair to find the autograph of a Nobel prize winner. Younger visitors can enjoy a trivia hunt, which asks questions about the museum’s exhibits. Ask for a copy at the museum’s reception area.

Located on Gamla Stan, the Nobel Museum is a short walk from Stockholm Royal Palace and Storkyrkan. Street parking is available, but is expensive and limited. Public transportation, such as buses and tram, provides a more convenient option. Alternatively, the museum is a 15-minute walk from Stockholm’s Central Station.

The museum is open daily in summer. In winter it is open from Tuesday to Sunday. It remains closed on select public holidays. See the museum’s official website for full details. Take advantage of the free entry on Tuesday evenings. Free guided tours in English take place daily. Alternatively, for a small fee you can rent an audio guide.
