The World Food Prize was conceived by Dr. Norman E. Borlaug, recipient of the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize.

The Hall of Laureates has it ALL--history, architecture, art, agriculture, energy efficiency technology, and most of all, celebration of Dr. Borlaug! I've learned so much from being a volunteer and had the opportunity to meet so many people I would not otherwise have met.
Excellent tour! Excellent guide! Highly recommend! Beautiful building with beautiful murals and pictures
