  • In all seriousness the upstairs was both inspiring (previous winners) and upsetting given the current themed exhibition on rape as an act of war/genocide  more »
  • There appears to be renovations to the building currently so you can’t clearly see the building- not that it really matters as it’s just a building. The disappointment begins when you’re actually...  more »

  • The pieces here we rather boring in honesty compared with everything else but it was nice to visit and see everything. You are required to go up on the right hand side but this isn't clear and the left side has no signs indicating this is an exit so we were told we go up the right side which was good but those people are not always there. The room with the screens is the most interesting where you can see all the Nobel Prize winners and the screens have a sensor to detect when you are in front of them where more information will display on screen. It's worth a visit but it's not the most exciting place to visit.
  • Be prepared for a very profound experience. The Nobel Peace Center is definitely worth the price of admission, but not in an entertaining and fun way. This is a very well done, and unflattering look at the ways the human race is failing itself, with a glimmer of hope portrayed through the few people who are making a standout difference. Please take the time to stop in if you’re in the area.
