We are open all summer
The Nobel Peace Center is open Wednesday through Sunday all summer. Finally, the first time, The Nobel Peace Prize Exhibition 2020 is available live!
The Nobel Peace Prize Exhibition 2020, with photos by the acclaimed artist Aïda Muluneh, was ready in December, when The World Food Programme was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. But due to the corona measures, The Nobel Peace Center has been closed to the audience for six months. Now, the exhibition is available to a live audience for the first time.
“ Finally, the fantastic photos that are part of the Nobel Peace Prize Exhibition can be shown to a live audience. They’ve been hanging on the walls here since December last year, says Kjersti Fløgstad, Executive Director of the Nobel Peace Center. She can guarantee enough space and protective measures in the newly reopened museum.
During the closure, the Center has been refurbishing and is about to open up the old archways leading to the new National Museum. The new museum will not open until 2022, but the public square between the two building will open this summer.“Oslo will get a brand-new outdoor space in the city center. And after a visit at the Nobel Peace Center, the cafés at Aker Brygge and the ferries to the Oslo Fjord islands are just a short walk away”, says Fløgstad.
THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE EXHIBITION
Food and hunger, and the role it plays in war and conflict, is the topic for the Nobel Peace Prize Exhibition 2020. The exhibition was ready to open on December 10, the day the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the World Food Programme. But due to the corona measure, it has never before been shown to a live audience. The acclaimed photographer Aïda Muluneh has made an exclusive photo series for the exhibition, illustrating ten countries and ten conflicts where food has been used as a weapon of war. The exhibition also tells the story of the Nobel Prize laureate 2020, the World Food Programme.
THE NOBEL MYSTERY
The escalator leading up to the second floor of the Nobel Peace Center has been converted into a time machine. At the top, you find yourself in 1896. The Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel is dead and the whole world is wondering what will happen to his big fortune. The hunt for Nobel’s last will can begin!
The exhibition is built like an escape room and in all the different rooms there are secret clues and puzzles. The answers will help you crack the secret code that opens the safe where Alfred Nobel's last will is hidden. The exhibition is made with corona measures in mind and the mystery can be solved without touching anything.
