Nobelmuseet review Rate it

The Nobel Museum opened in 2001 to commemorate the centenary of the Nobel Prizes. Although the museum is not that large, its two theatres showing short films about the laureates, television clips about the prizes and a computer room with an 'e-museum' bombard you with enough information to keep you entertained for a while. You can also listen to acceptance speeches over the years in audio booths, including that of Martin Luther King in 1964. Alfred Nobel's books, lab equipment and two packs of dynamite are displayed in a side room, along with his death mask and a copy of the first page of his four-page will, which called for the creation of the prizes. An exhibit on the Nobel banquet includes a glassed-in table setting and videos of the event.
