Welcome to the Nobel Laureates’ very own museum. In a truly unique environment, you can combine inspirational experiences with good food and beverages.

 

General
Being a museum, the Nobel Museum is not rented out for events that require extensive on-site rigging or dancing. Since the Nobel Museum must be considerate of other tenants and is located in a residential area, playing excessively loud music during an event is not allowed. The music must always be approved by the Nobel Museum’s Event Department. The museum’s interior or exterior may not be changed in any way during an event. Any rigging must always be approved by the Museum’s Event Department. See more information under entertainment /technical equipment.

The space
During events, with or without refreshments, the client is renting the entire Nobel Museum. Because of this, the Nobel Museum charges a baseline cost, or “arrangement cost”. It includes exclusive access to the museum space, entrance fee, a guided tour, staff, the museum shop being open during a certain period in the evening and cleaning. The Nobel Museum cannot be rented for parties only. Instead the arrangements always include a guided tour or other knowledge-sharing activity. The museum space is suitable for many conceivable kinds of arrangements. Contact the Event Department to see how your event can be carried out in the best possible way.
