Description

Museum in a former synagogue in Calmeyers gate 15 B, in the neighbourhood where most of Oslo's Jewish immigrants settled from the mid-1800s onwards.

Oslo Jewish Museum is an extroverted and active cultural and research institution, which protects the Jewish minority national heritage and conveys the Jewish tradition and history from early immigration up to the present. At the same time the museum is bulding an ever-growing photo and artifact collection, and manages a unique documentation archive of the Norwegian Jewish culture and history over 160 years.

Exhibitions (subtitled in both Norwegian and English)
"Remember us for life - Jewish destinies 1940-1945" opened to mark the 70-year-anniversary of the deportation of Jews from Norway. The exhibition's main focus is the people and families that were affected.

"The Jewish year – For Everything there is a Season" is an interactive and child-friendly exhibition which deals with feasting and holidays throughout the year.

"Heia jødene! An exhibition about integration and the joy of sports" is devoted to showing Jewish life and presence at its most ordinary and fundamentally "Norwegian" – in outdoor recreation and in sports.
