“At Nobel Prize Museum, we usually receive visitors from all over the world. Now that we are temporarily closing the museum at Stortorget, the main square in Stockholm’s Old Town, we are taking the opportunity to recommend the Nobel Prize’s global digital channels, which have over five million followers. Here, the stories of the Nobel Laureates show the ability of humankind to constantly find solutions to the difficult challenges we face. Right now, it feels especially important to highlight all these courageous and persistent people, who inspire and give us hope for the future. You can also follow the museum’s own social media channels, where we plan to make our school and programme activities and also our collection available in new formats,” says Erika Lanner, Director of Nobel Prize Museum.

Earlier this week all programme activities, guided tours, family activities, school programmes and events were cancelled until 30 April. Now Nobel Prize Museum is also closing its doors to casual visitors until 13 April. Information on how the museum will continuously adapt its activities to the situation surrounding the new coronavirus you find here.

About the Nobel Prize Museum

The Nobel Prize shows that ideas can change the world. The courage, creativity and perseverance of the Nobel Laureates inspire us and give us hope for the future. Films, in-depth tours, and artefacts tell the stories of the Laureates and their contributions ‘for the greatest benefit to humankind’. Based on the Nobel Prize’s unique combination of fields – natural sciences, literature and peace – we examine the greatest challenges of our time and show how we can respond to them through science, humanism and collaboration. With our exhibitions, school programmes, lectures and conversations, we at the Nobel Prize Museum strive to engage the public in making a better world. Today we are located at Stortorget in Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s Old Town district. We are planning to create a new home for our public outreach activities at Slussen in downtown Stockholm.
