A new home for the Nobel Prize

The Nobel Prize is based on the conviction that new ideas and public engagement can change the world for the better – a concept that is just as relevant and important today as it was when Alfred Nobel wrote his will in 1895.

The aim of the Nobel Prize organisation’s public exhibitions, meetings, digital channels and all its other outreach activities both in Sweden and globally is to help create exciting encounters between people – people who dare to challenge the status quo, who want to ask new questions, think new thoughts and contribute to a better world.

In the spirit of Alfred Nobel, the home of the Nobel Prize should be a meeting place that highlights the great issues of our time and shows how we can respond to them through science, humanism and cooperation.

Today our home in Sweden is the Nobel Prize Museum, located on Stortorget, the main square in Stockholm’s Old Town. In order to bring together our public outreach activities and become a natural destination for people from all over the world – tourists, Stockholm residents, researchers and school pupils – we would like to create a new home for the Nobel Prize in the heart of Stockholm, the city where Alfred Nobel was born, in a unique setting with more space, greater accessibility and more opportunities for exciting encounters.
