The Peace Prize Laureates exhibition is filled with information, photos, texts, videos and animations about the Peace Prize laureates’ life and work.

Unfortunately, we are closed for renovations in January, February and March of 2023. The Peace Prize exhibition, on the other hand, can be experienced in Oslo City Hall from mid-January and our digital exhibitions are always open. Welcome back to an even better museum experience in April!


On five large screens, you may navigate your way through facts about the Peace Prize laureates. When the Nobel Peace Center opens to the public the morning after the announcement, photos and articles about the new laureate are on display. The audience can read more about Abiy Ahmed Ali and Ethiopias ongoing process towards peace and democracy. More than 2,800 other articles and 1,500 images, videos and animations can be retrieved and explored.

Among those who have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize since 1901, are some of the most significant figures in our recent history. True to their ideals, but at the same time focused on dialogue and collaboration, and of doing mankind good. Laureates like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Fridtjof Nansen, The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Albert Schweitzer and Alva Myrdal all contribute to making the Nobel Peace Prize the world’s most prestigious prize.
