As the theme suggests, the focus is on matter and concepts of Physics that led to discoveries and inventions in Physics which revolutionized the way we lived. Alfred Nobel was not only a revolutionary inventor, but also a successful industrialist. When he wrote down his will in 1895, he decreed that his fortune should be used to award prizes to those who “had bestowed the greatest benefit of mankind” within five fields that include Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Literature and Peace. Physics was undoubtedly one of the key subjects for Alfred Nobel. Jamal bin Huwaireb, Managing Director of MBRF, noted that the museum “offers audiences a glimpse into this field, the most important breakthroughs that have been made and the most prominent scientists who have devoted their lives to studying the universe around us.”

The Nobel Museum is divided into eight sections, each one highlighting a concept related to Physics and matter. From X-ray imagery to quantum physics, there are several interactive exhibits that help children understand how the universe is made up of both visible and invisible matter and how various Nobel Laureates made life changing discoveries. The different sections of the museum include:
