  Nobel Peace Center

The Nobel peace centre is located near to the City Hall and opened in June 2005. To use the materials published about it -the "insitution is an institution that aims to reflect humanity's greatest efforts to achieve peace in all it's forms. It presents the peace prize winners and their work, Alfred Nobel and the Nobel System."

The centre is to be used as a meeting place for discussions and reflections relating to war, peace and confliction resolution.

There are a number of interesting exhibits to be seen - the most impressive two items to see are the "Nobel Field" which is a visual concent by David Adajaye which presents every single Peace Laureate in "a striking field of light and sound."

The second is "The Wall Papers" which is a piece which contains hundreds or articles and images which have been colelcted to gether and can be viewed on a vast wall mounted screen - Norwegian and English. It is incredibly hot however.
