The Nobel Prize: Ideas Changing the World is an exhibition about Alfred Nobel, the Nobel Prize, the Laureates, and how Nobel Prize-awarded efforts have shaped and continue to change our world.

The Nobel Prize: Ideas Changing the World uses unique objects and documents, original artistic interpretations, and advanced exhibition techniques.

The exhibition consists of five pavilions dealing with five different themes:

• The Nobel Prize provides an introduction to the Nobel Prize and its areas.

• Alfred Nobel presents Alfred Nobel, his inventions and industrial operations, and the background to his will.

• The Nobel Prize Over the Decades gives an overvew of the history of the Nobel Prize, and of the Laureates and their work.

• The Nobel Prize in Our Daily Lives demonstrates the link between Nobel Prize-awarded efforts and phenomena in everyday life.

• The Nobel Prize and the Future addresses the question of how Nobel Prize-awarded discoveries may affect the future and of what future Nobel Prizes may involve.
