  Nobel Peace Centre, Oslo
by suvanki

Afraid this was another Oslo sight that we only viewed from the outside.

Converted from one of the old railway buildings, This ice cream coloured building is dedicated to remembering the work of former prizewinners as well as educating us re peace issues.

I did pick up a flyer from my hotel reception, with upto date opening hours etc-

This centre has permanant displays of the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates and their works. A 'magic book' that illustrates the life and work of Alfred Nobel, temporary gallery exhibits including current conflicts, a digital newspaper, The Eye cinema (showing short films and documentaries). Regular lectures are arranged.
There is also a cafe, and a shop selling gifts, plus peace and conflict resolution literature.
