The Safe Haven Holocaust Refugee Shelter Museum is dedicated to keeping alive the stories of the 982 refugees from
World War II who were allowed into the United States as "guests" of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. These refugees were housed at Fort Ontario in Oswego, New York, from August 1944 until February 1946.
2 East 7th Street, Oswego, NY 13126
Please Note: The primary museum exhibits are currently
undergoing a complete redesign and upgrade. The museum
will remain open during this time; however, there will be no
admission fee and a temporary exhibit will be on display until
the new exhibits are complete, which we anticipate to be May 2020.
