Interesting overview of jewish history along with a detailed insight into daily life in the jewish community in Trondheim. Reasonably priced, however the layout of the museum is a bit unintuitive..

Nice little museum reflecting on the Norwegian Jewry with emphasis on the holocaust story in Norway. The Trondheim synagogue is located on the second floor. Nice courteous staff.

This museum in the basement of the temple gives you another view of the loss of life Europe experienced during the Holocaust. Of all the Jewish people deported, most were killed. Only a tiny number of Jewish people survived. This museum helped me envision how...More

My short visit to Trondheim fortuitously aligned with the winter Sunday afternoon opening of the museum. I was given a very comprehensive tour by one of the members of the local Jewish community and I learnt so much, both about Judaism and the history of...More

This small museum presents the history of Jews in Norway. Unlike the Netherlands, Norway was not as tolerant of its Jews. A small synagogue can be visited on an upper floor.

After paying admission (50 NOK/adult) I learned that one of the museum's 2 exhibits is closed for improvements. (That was very disappointing-I don't understand why museum's pursue such improvements during tourist season.) The 2 exhibits are Jewish life pre-WW2, and WW2 and after. The latter...More
