Small museum

Worth a visit if you have the Stockholm pass and get in for free. Not a lot to see and so visit doesn't not take long.

This museum is packed with interesting information. Even if it is small you can spend everything from one hour to half the day here. If you want an overview and introduction to the Nobel price follow a guided tour. As a science (or literature) affectionate you will be happy just strolling around absorbing the information and reflect on the ideas... More

The museum gives excellent information on a number of interesting Nobel prize winners. In particular the latest ones. But also on the past ones. It also has some interesting exhibitions. I recommend to use the audio guide.

There are free guided tours of this museum. They aren't that often, but a must in my viewpoint, otherwise you'll be lost to the meaning and purpose of the exhibits and quirky history that surrounds the tales of those laureates issued the prizes. Not that kid friendly....120skr entry I thought was too much. Done in 1hr, and that was with... More

A fantastic place if you want some condensed information about the Nobel Prize and Nobel Laureates. Small in size, but with lot's of content. Join the guided tours, the staff is fantastic!

While it is in the heart of Old town (Gamla stan) go there (New building like a golden brick, check for the latest news online) . It is big fun to know who is Nobel, why we need to know more about Nobel. This is good place for kids, they offer some interaction activities. I recommend to take guide tour,... More

We almost passed on this based on a few bad reviews and I'm SO glad we didn't. Granted, it is just one floor but is very well done with two rooms running loops of video - one with interviews of the laureates speaking in laymen's terms and talking about their thought processes and inspirations. Many interactive displays, including high- powered... More

The museum isn't large, but you can easily spend several hours there. There are guided tours available at certain times, but you also can wander on your own and just read the descriptions and see the artefacts. Really enjoyable visit, and don't hesitate to bring the kids - the have kids area, where the Hingis are explained in a game-like... More

The museum felt small but there was so much info contained in such a small place. If you take the time to explore all the exhibits and watch the various movies it will be well worth your time. Guides and staff are knowledgeable and friendly.

Maybe it was me, but the value vs what you get to see is very disappointing, and almost fell like a fraud, but, maybe it is because all the other places, filled me so much that I could not be happy with so little.

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.
