The Nobel Peace Center reopens its doors to the public with a brand new exhibition for the whole family.

"The Nobel Peace Center is one of the top sights for tourists visiting Oslo. The story of the Nobel Peace Prize and all the wonderful Peace Prize laureates' ideas and work is also definitely something Norwegians should experience," says Kjersti Fløgstad, Director of the Nobel Peace Center.

A new experience

In addition to finally being able to open our doors to the public, we have the pleasure of opening our new family experience: The Nobel Mystery - The Hunt for Alfred Nobel’s Will.

"I’m like a kid in a candy store! That’s how excited I am to open our new interactive exhibition that we have created especially for our guests visiting with their families. The mystery surrounding Alfred Nobel is suitable for children from 8-90 years. I hope everyone will run down our doors to get an interesting and corona-free experience at the Peace Center," says Fløgstad.

In the Nobel Mystery, we go back to the year 1896. The famous Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel has just been found dead. Alfred has no children, and the question on everyone's lips is: Who's going to inherit all of his money? The will is loocked up in the safe at Alfred's home in San Remo, Italy. But what is the code for the safe? And what does the will say?

"With our new family experience about Alfred Nobel, we want to create a fun and educational experience for everyone. We can't wait to see if our guests can break the code,"
says Toril Rokseth, Programme Director at the Nobel Peace Center.

The Nobel Mystery is an interactive family experience where you, together with your friends and family, will try and find the secret code by exploring, investigating and looking around. By solving six tasks, you will eventually find the code that opens the locked safe containing Alfred's will. Along the way, you will get to know Alfred Nobel and the history of the Nobel Prizes in a slightly different way.

In addition to our new interactive exhibition, you will have the opportunity to do some sustainable shopping in our museum shop, and experience the photo-exhibition Crossroads Ethiopia - the 2019 Peace Prize Exhibition, which is a portrait of peace prize laureate Abiy Ahmed Ali and a close-up of Ethiopia.
