The Nobel Peace Center, known as Nobels Fredssenter locally, is one of the most visited museums in the city. Situated in the heart of the city, close to the Oslo City Hall, this centre houses an assortment of exhibits, which tell you about the lives of the people who have won the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize over the years.
When you book a guided tour, you will get to visit the Nobel Field, where the presentation takes place and learn about the gold medal offered to Nobel Peace laureates. You can go through the lists of people and organizations, who have won the prize over the years, and learn about their work. Occasionally, there is a fun game organised for guests where members need to locate the missing will of Alfred Nobel!
At 12:00 pm on Fridays, the centre has a custom of releasing a peace dove with the soothing recording of John Lennon's ‘Give Peace a Chance’ playing in the background. People flock to the museum to watch this goosebumps-inducing spectacle!
A free audio guide is available in nine languages for those who want to tour the museum alone. There is a café offering lipsmacking snacks and a museum shop selling Nobel Peace Prize-inspired goods here. You can visit this attraction for free if you buy the Oslo Pass.
