On Stortorget itself, you can't help but notice a particularly spectacular, lemon-hued building with a grand pediment front and arched windows topped by a cupola. This is the former Stockholm Stock Exchange building, which now houses the Swedish Academy, the Nobel Prize Museum and the Nobel Library. Head inside the Nobel Prize Museum’s halls to discover the story of various winners of the Nobel Prize and Nobel Laureates over the last century. Like the prize itself, the museum aims to inspire visitors to learn about the natural sciences and human culture, and the journey through some 900 winners across physics, literature, chemistry, physiology/medicine and world peace, is also a journey through creativity in the twentieth century. While visiting the museum, you’ll also have the opportunity to learn about Alfred Nobel himself, the Swedish chemist who left the entirety of his enormous fortune to set up the Nobel Prize institution. During his lifetime, among the 355 patents with his name, Nobel is credited with inventing dynamite. It is partly due to criticisms that he had profited from war that Nobel left his money to the Nobel Prize institution in his will, writing that it should honour those who “have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind.” Image by JarkkoManty from Pixabay
