The Norwegian Center for Holocaust and Minority Studies is a research, education and documentation center in Oslo focusing on the Holocaust, other genocides, extremism, antisemitisim, hate speech, and the situation of minorities in contemporary societies.
Our museum is closed due to Covid-19 restrictions
The Norwegian Center for Holocaust and Minority Studies is normally open between 11 am and 4 pm every day during winter season. Updates on how the pandemic affects our events and other activities will be posted on www.hlsenteret.no and in our social media channels, so stay with us online.
As always, you will find our beautiful garden with a path leading to the popular beach Huk open to the cautious public. You are welcome to take a break on the benches by the entrance and in the garden on the other side of the building.
You could also make a short stop by the interesting piece of art work, Innocent Questions, on the façade of the building. The installation artist Arnold Dreyblatt has used an oversized punch card, focusing both on the Holocaust and current questions, to raise awareness of the violation of personal rights.
MINO in the making
Walking up the alley towards Villa Grande, on the right side of the building you will see – and probably hear! – a construction site. Here, the center's new wing MINO, designed by Transborder Studio, will open in late summer 2021.The annex will contain temporary exhibitions on minority issues in contemporary societies, as well as other present-day topics.
