Nobel Museum in Stockholm Sweden 2018
On July 14th, 2018, I visited the famous Nobel Museum, (pictured below). The Nobel Museum contained all the essential information about the most prestigious prize in the world, Alfred Nobel, and the Nobel Laureates.
In his will, Nobel decided that a large part of his fortune would go to establishing a prize in five different categories: Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature and a Peace Prize. The first Nobel Prize was awarded on December 10, 1901.
The Nobel Week begins in the second week of December each year. The Nobel Laureates come to Stockholm to participate in an extensive program of festivities and academic events arranged by the Nobel Foundation. The week culminates on Nobel Day, December 10, when the Laureates receive the prize from Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf at the Stockholm Concert Hall (Konserthuset). The Nobel Museum in Stockholm, (Pictured above), showcases the story of founder Alfred Nobel, the many Nobel Laureates throughout the years and the award itself using fascinating displays, short films, and much more. The Museum is located on Stortorget square in Gamla Stan (the Old Town).
