Description

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

The synagogue was erected in 1921 and was in use until 1942, when the city's Jews either fled or were deported to Nazi death camps.

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.

The exhibition "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 museum also displays the interactive and child-friendly exhibition "The Jewish year - All in Its Time", which deals with feasting and holidays throughout the year.

Both exhibitions are texted in both Norwegian and English.
