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.

The museum offers an inspiring insight into the winners of the Nobel Prizes, including a look at their background and the obstacles they surpassed. It is worth visiting if you have an interest, but otherwise I am not sure if it would be worth a visit. There is little to look at - granted there is an interactive area at... More

This museum is free to enter from 5pm to 8pm on Tuesday's. I would not pay $13 for a ticket inside. The museum is quite small but has quite a few rotating exhibits of the different winners over the years. The gift shop is kinda dumb...

We had high expectations but the experience was 5/10 As a museum for show casing winners in various categories it is ok but for young children could be boring. I requires a massive new strategy and rethink to make it more appealing. The Vasa Museum stands out head and shoulders in comparison. Certainly don't understand the overhead flip-chart belt -...

This was one of my favorite stops, I just wish that info was more spread out about the individual winners, for instance, next to their artifacts they have of them (and they have quite a few artifacts). I definitely recommend the 25ish min guided tour of the museum before looking around on your own.

lots of interesting things to see and read about. Only need an hour or so to cover this museum. See the new Nobel Recipients, see and hear hands on things about past significant Nobel prize winners

You pay over 100 kronas per person. We expected much more for that than a ground floor space behind the cash office, which was mostly filled with pictures of people who received the Nobel Price. With all respect, I could have done my research using Wikipedia. I thought I would see some principles behind Nobel's dynamite invention, the actual Nobel... More

When I heard this museum was in Stockholm I was very excited. The layout of the museum is very technology friendly. I think how it was done was very smart! It was not as interesting as I was hoping because you have to just walk your self through machines to really read about each winner of the prize.

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.
