One of Oslo's newest attractions, the ultramodern center presents the history of the founding father of the prize, Alfred Nobel, "the dynamite king," and the biographies and careers of Nobel Peace Prize laureates such as Nelson Mandela. In addition to changing exhibits, a permanent exhibition illustrates the careers of the laureates through film, including recordings of actual Peace Prize ceremonies. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of one of the winners of the Peace Prize who sometimes come to the renovated train station to give lectures.
