Jewish Museum in Oslo

Jewish Museum in Oslo is located in Calmeyers gate 15

The Jewish Museum in Oslo aims at informing about Jews in Norway. It was established as a foundation in 2003, supported by the Det mosaiske trossamfunn and Oslo City Museum.

The museum was officially opened by Haakon, Crown Prince of Norway on September 8, 2008. The location was selected as one where there had been a substantial Jewish population. A synagogue stood on the same street from 1921 to 1942, and many of the Jews immigrating to Norway from the Baltics lived in the vicinity.

Nomination for Museum of the Year

In 2014 the museum was nominated for Museumforbundet's Museum of the Year Award—alongside KODE and Telemark Museum.[1]
