The Will to Change the World
An inspiring, new exhibition about Alfred Nobel and the history of the Peace Prize shows the power represented by “the world's most prestigious prize”.
Unfortunately, we are closed for renovations in the period January-25. August of 2023. The Peace Prize exhibition, on the other hand, can be experienced in our digital exhibitions that are always open. Welcome back to an even better museum experience in August!
How can a person's thoughts and actions change the world? What does it take to create peace? The history of the Nobel Peace Prize provides many different answers to these questions. Since 1901, this annual award has highlighted individuals and organizations that have helped to create a better and more peaceful world. An exhibition that opens at the Nobel Peace Center this spring allows the public to get to know the Nobel Peace Prize a little better, as well as the man who created it and the force for change it represents.
The exhibition "The will to change the world" opened to the public on 17 March and can be visited on the ground floor of the Nobel Peace Center. In a playful and inspiring way, it tells the story of Alfred Nobel and shows how the Peace Prize has evolved over time. From peace negotiations and relief work to nuclear disarmament, climate change mitigation and international cooperation, the history of the award reveals many different solutions to the world's most crucial and difficult challenges. Visitors to the exhibition can also test themselves to find out what type of peace-maker they are, and which Peace Prize laureates they most resemble.
"The will to change the world" is developed by Sixsides for the Nobel Peace Center and created with support from The Savings Bank Foundation DNB.
