Learn about ideas that changed the world at Nobel Prize 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.

  • Great building, a little hidden in the old town. The plaza in front has a warm Italian atmosphere. The museum is relatively small, but very informative, for science/history lovers, it is a heaven. Staff are very friendly, consider how many visitors every day, they have admirable patient. We had a Swedish tour due to time convenience, ended up with a private tour, it's more interesting than we expected, information one usually doesn't think about, for example, nomination list can't be open until 50 years later, turn out many wants to know who nominated Bob Dylan. Kids are welcome, they got quiz and free chocolate for price. There are also free lockers and jacket hangers outside bathroom, very considerate touch.
  • A must see if you visit Stockholm! This is a fantastically laid out museum and despite its relatively small size it still takes a good hour or more to explore it all. And if you're a huge science fan like me, you'll be entranced by all the laureates that are featured. There are personal artifacts from many of the Nobel recipients that also makes the experience even more immersive. Also chair 47 there is signed by Barack Obama himself! Check that out if you can
