As former US president and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter said after visiting the museum, “it was a pleasure to visit a museum of peace in a nation dedicated to peace and human rights”. The museum opened in 2005 in honour of the prestigious prize, its founder Alfred Nobel and, not least, the worthy laureates. “Our goal is to inspire and contribute to peace. And we try to do it in a way that makes our visitors reflect on what they can do to make the world a more peaceful place,” says executive director Liv Tørres.
