A record 110,000 people visited the Making Peace exhibition at the Nobel Museum in Stockholm in 2013, with more than 6,000 attending the opening.
This was the first time that the exhibit was adapted for an indoor presentation and the first showing in a Nordic country. Parallel activities were organised by the museum to help the general public and especially youth understand the significance of Nobel's legacy and the importance of the Nobel Peace Prize in recognizing the outstanding work of peacemakers around the globe. One such activity included a film project that allowed young refugees (namely from Afghanistan) to express their personal stories creatively in public.
The occasion also provided an opportunity for the International Peace Bureau (IPB) to organize its triennial conference during which Nobel Peace Laureates Jody Williams and Mairead Corrigan Maguire gave public presentations at the Nobel Museum.
Supporting Making Peace locally was the Swedish Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) and the Swedish Fellowship of Reconciliation (SweFOR).
