The Nobel Peace Center is an independent foundation, financed through a combination of private donations and government grants. Close to 250,000 people visit us each year, including over 700 school groups.
Located in the heart of Oslo, Norway, the Nobel Peace Center is a place where you can experience and learn about the various Nobel Peace Prize laureates and their activities as well as the remarkable history of Alfred Nobel. It also serves as a meeting place where exhibitions, discussions and reflections related to war, peace, conflict resolution and important social issues are in focus.
The Nobel Peace Center has achieved international recognition for the use of documentary photography. It combines exhibits with digital communication and interactive installations, and has already received acclaim for its modern design and use of state-of-the-art technology.
The British architect David Adjaye, the American designer David Small and a number of other artists have contributed to making the center what it is today. The Nobel Peace Center is located in an old train station building from 1872, close to the Oslo City Hall and overlooking the harbor.
