Museum in a former synagogue in the neighbourhood where most of Oslo's Jewish immigrants settled from the mid-1800s onwards.
Oslo Jewish Museum wishes to protect the Jewish minority's national heritage and convey the Jewish tradition and history in Norway from early immigration up to the present. The museum continues to grow its photo and artifact collection, and manages a unique documentation archive of 160 years of Norwegian Jewish culture and history.
The museum is closed at Christmas.

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.
