In this beautiful 18th-century building on the main square in Gamla Stan you can learn about the various Nobel laureates – Al Gore (Peace, 2007), Marie Curie (Chemistry, 1911), Winston Churchill (Literature, 1953), Mikhail Gorbachev (Peace, 1990), Guglielmo Marconi (Physics, 1909) and so forth. You can also find out more about Alfred Nobel, the Stockholmer who made a fortune with the invention of dynamite and then bequeathed his wealth to establish the world’s most prestigious prize. There are regular temporary exhibitions focusing on particular Nobel Laureates (such as, from 2007, ‘Churchill: Painter and Writer’). Don’t miss the autographs in the Café Satir: Nobel laureates are invited to sign the underside of the chairs. If you are in the city in October, it is possible to attend the announcements of some of the prizes (check www.nobelprize.org for details).
