Becoming a remembrance and learning centre
The 22 July Centre was established in 2015 as a temporary information centre in the Highrise-building. It opened on 22 July, four years after the terrorist attack in 2011. The Support group and AUF were among the initiators of an information centre while the nation waited for a national memorial to be put in place.
The Centre was established by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Modernization, and was until 2019 run by the Norwegian Government Security and Service Organisation. Since 1 July 2019, the 22 July Centre is a governmental body under the Ministry of Education.
