The Nobel Peace Center is the museum about the Nobel Peace Prize. We present the Peace Prize laureates and their work, and tell the story of Alfred Nobel and the Peace Prize. The Center also acts as an arena for debate about important social issues. Through permanent and temporary exhibitions, guided tours, school programs and various events and family activities, we wish to foster reflection and engagement on topics related to war, peace and conflict resolution. The Nobel Peace Center has achieved international recognition for the use of documentary photography.
The Nobel Peace Center is an independent foundation, financed through a combination of private donations and government grants. Close to 250,000 people visit us each year, including over 700 school groups.
We are located in the heart of Oslo, close to the City Hall, in what used to be the railway station Vestbanen. Find information about our opening hours and ticket prices here. The museum also has its own shop.
