Nobel Peace Center, Oslo

Concierge.com's insider take:
Just around the corner from the Rådhus (city hall) where the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded every year, the Nobel Peace Center offers info on Peace Laureates and their work as well as fascinating temporary exhibitions that shed light on world conditions. The first floor is home to the revolving installations, like a group of photos showing refugees from around the world. Head upstairs to view the permanent exhibitions, including a walk-through display of the past Nobel Peace Prize winners' contributions to humanity. The gift shop, on your way out, is stocked with books on globalization topics and by Nobel winners, as well as fair-trade jewelry. And few visitors know that just a short stroll away you can pop into the Rådhus to see the elaborately painted room where the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded every year.—Terry Ward
