According to the manifesto of the museum the intentions are to be a "reflecting and go-ahead spirited memory of the Nobel laureates and their achievements as well as of the Nobel Prize and Alfred Nobel". To achieve these aims, the museum offers exhibitions, films, theatre plays, and debates related to science; besides the regular book and souvenir shops, and cafés usually found in museums. The museum boasts exhibitions featuring celebrities such as Marie Curie, Nelson Mandela, and Winston Churchill, to name but a few. [1][2]

The museum opened in the spring of 2001 for the centenary of the Nobel Prize. Since, the great demand for guided tours from school classes have made the premises in the old town cramped for space, and ambitions are to relocate the institution to a more suitable building on Skeppsholmen (or more specifically the secularized church Skeppsholmskyrkan), an islet further east in central Stockholm already interlarded with museums and others related institutions. [1]

For visitors who want to bring a piece of the museum home, a souvenir shop is available that contains items about Alfred Nobel and the museum. One of the most popular items is Alfred Nobels gold coin made in chocolate. During 2011 the souvenir shop collabrated with the artist Artan Mansouri who made paintings that symbolized Alfred Nobels life. [3]
