The Jewish museum is closed due to renovations and will open in 2018.
The museum will open in new premises in the Old city of Stockholm, adding another piece to Swedish cultural heritage – the Jewish piece. At the place of the new museum was once a synagogue, but it has also been used as a police station, an auction house and a sailors’ church. Between 1795 and 1870 its function was as synagogue and community building for the Jews of Stockholm. Therefore, moving in there is a bit like returning home for a museum whose task it is to depict Swedish-Jewish history and culture.
