Welcome to Nobel Prize Museum!

The Nobel Prize shows that ideas can change the world. The courage, creativity and perseverance of the Nobel Laureates inspire us and give us hope for the future.

Based on the Nobel Prize’s unique combination of fields – natural sciences, literature and peace – we at Nobel Prize Museum invite you to exhibitions, school programmes, lectures and dialogues about the great issues of our time.

We are a small museum with vast content. With the help of videos, donated artifacts and in-depth guided tours you meet freedom fighters, writers and scientists who all contributed to the greatest benefit to humankind.

Clear vision

Swedish inventor and industrialist Alfred Nobel (1833-1896) had a clear vision about the prize he created. In his will, he wrote that he wanted to reward those who had “conferred the greatest benefit to humankind”. The Nobel Prize and the stories of the Nobel Laureates are the basis for a broad range of public outreach activities that show how we can learn from history in order to understand our present-day world and influence our future.

A better world

Over the past 20 years our travelling exhibitions have toured all over the world. We have worked together with teachers and met thousands of curious pupils – education and in-service training for teachers is one of our corner stones.

With the Nobel Prize organisation’s public exhibitions, meetings, digital channels and all our other outreach activities both in Sweden and globally, we wish to help create exciting encounters between people – people who dare to challenge the status quo, who want to ask new questions, think new thoughts and contribute to a better world.

A home for the Nobel Prize in Stockholm

Nobel Prize Museum focuses on the great issues of our time and shows how we can respond to them through science, humanism and cooperation. Today we are located on Stortorget, the main square in Stockholm’s Old Town. In the future we will be creating a new home for the Nobel Prize in the heart of the Swedish capital.
