Nobel Peace Center Museum

A few steps away from the Rådhuset lies the building of the former west railway station Oslo Vestbanestasjon which from 2005 is the building of the Nobel Peace Center Museum. The station remained in use until 1989, when all traffic was moved to the new Central Station after the opening of the Oslo tunnel.

Today the museum is a place where the visitor can learn about the various Nobel Piece Prize Laureates and their activities as well as the remarkable history of Alfred Nobel.It is also a hub of exhibits, discussions and reflections related to war, piece and conflict resolution. The Center combines exhibits and films with digital communication and interactive installations and has already received attention for its modern design and use of state of the art technology.
