    Ideas changing the world

    At the Nobel Center, the focus will be on the Nobel Prize and the stories of the Nobel Laureates. These are stories of courage, conviction and persistence – stories which prove that ideas can change the world.

    A civic building

    The Nobel Center will be a building seething with activity. It will create a new platform for exhibitions, scientific seminars, lectures and discussions about current topics and events of various kinds

A place that engages, inspires and stimulates curiosity

Nobel Center is to be built on Blasieholmen, on a wonderful site along Stockholm’s central waterfront. Through its broad public activities, the Nobel Center will invite people into the Nobel Prize’s unique world of natural sciences, humanities and peace efforts and become a meeting place that inspires curiosity and creativity. The Nobel Prize and the life stories of the Nobel Laureates provide a rich source of inspiration on which the Nobel Center will build its exhibitions, media productions and educational activities. For many years, the City of Stockholm has reserved this site for public activities of international interest. We believe that the Nobel Center will enhance the value of this location and make it more accessible for visitors to Stockholm, as well as its residents. A long-awaited attraction will finally become a reality.

We have an exciting journey ahead of us and welcome everyone to follow our progress!


An exciting new year

With 2016 now under way, our work with the Nobel Center is moving ahead. We are continuing to plan for the activities that will take place in the building for school children, museum visitors, researchers, Stockholm residents and people from all over the world. This spring we also expect the Stockholm City Planning Committee to approve the detailed local plan for the Nobel Center.
