We are finally open! We invite you to explore new exhibitions and inspiring experiences in our museum at the City Hall Square.

The Nobel Peace Prize Museum has been closed for necessary renovations since January. Shorty before the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded at Oslo City Hall, we have finally reopened the doors to a newly renovated center with a new shop, a new conference room, and fantastic new exhibition areas. If you visit us during the opening week, you will also receive a 2-for-1 ticket that you can use with a friend later in December. See all the exciting things you can experience throughout the month:

The Nobel Peace Center opened a brand new, small exhibition on dialogue. The exhibition is inspired by Nelson Mandela's statement that 'The best weapon is to sit down and talk.' Here, the audience can learn from the methods of Nobel Peace Prize laureates for effective dialogue and take home valuable tips.

On December 12th, the annual Peace Prize exhibition, WOMAN – LIFE – FREEDOM opened. The exhibition is a vivid encounter with Peace Prize laureate Narges Mohammadi and the courageous women fighting for freedom and human rights in Iran.

When the museum for the 'world's most important prize' closed in January, it was for a simple renovation of the premises. The plan was to reopen in April. However, during the work, it turned out that the old Vestbane building from 1872 had significant settlement damage and needed new foundations underground. As a result, the reopening was delayed by eight months.

"We are so happy to be able to welcome visitors to the center once again” , says Executive Director Kjersti Fløgstad. "Here at the Nobel Peace Center, we show the important work of the Nobel Peace Prize laureates. We believe that their inspiring stories are more needed than ever, at a time when it is easy to lose hope and faith in the future."
