I enjoyed a guided tour of the Nobel Museum on my first afternoon in Stockholm. My walking tour of Gamla Stan ended right outside of the museum and I was able to easily get a ticket for an afternoon tour just about 30 minutes before it started. This museum is well done, hold many artifacts relevant to past recipients of... More

For me the museum was interesting, I could learn a lot about Alfred Nobel and also the Nobel prize but somehow I was not fully happy at the end of this experience. I think the museum could be more interactive.

Lots of detail and some very friendly staff. Some neat displays and lots of detail on Alfred Nobel, the process of Noel Prizes and of course details on those who have been fortunate enough to be awarded prizes. Maybe not everyone's cup of tea depending on interests.

Very nice museum and staff is very helpful. Every Tuesday after 5:00 pm, entry is free of charge. Regular price is 120 SKR. I find Jaser Arafat, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luter King and Ivo Andrić and that's the reason why I came here today.

Throughout the visit I had one impression - their main goal is to convince people that the Nobel prize is crucial for the development of mankind. There are some experiments, but not all of them work and the staff are not very eager to help and explain. A collection of memorabilia, but some of them rather ridiculous, like Yousafzai's shawl...

Spent an hour at the Nobel museum during my recent trip to Stockholm. It is housed in the same building as the Swedish Academy. Having worked in science and engineering for over three decades, frankly speaking, I had higher expectations and was a little disappointed. I was hoping to see more memorabilia, but their collection is scant. For the most... More

Everything about this museum was fun: the guide was hilarious and really knew his stuff; the cafe chairs were all signed by Nobel winners; the cinema had interesting mini films about prize winners; there was info about Nobel himself; and there was a rich collection of gifts donated by winners! Totally worth the price, this place will entertain you for... More

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.
