We were doing other things in the area and had heard someone mention the museum so we sought it out; well worth a visit. An amazing job was done restoring the building and the docent lead narration was excellent.

This synagogue is worth a visit. The tour was very informative and gives lots of background information on the building but also on the neighborhood and on immigration into New York in the early years. It's in an interesting neighborhood too, China Town!

The museum at Eldridge Street is housed in the Eldridge Synagogue. This building was the firstOrthodox Synagogue built in the city by Eastern European Jews. A beautiful building that deserves to be supported. Our guide was lovely as well

Not a particularly well known tourist attraction I believe but this museum is really worth a visit. It provides a fascinating insight into early life in the lower east side. Our guide was really interesting and knowledgeable.

We had a wonderful tour of the beautiful Restored Eldridge Synagogue. The docents are extremely informed. There Is also 3 short videos in the rabbi's study. This is still a used and active Synagogue.

This magnificent synagogue has been saved and beautifully restored. Almost lost through neglect and closure this important historic building has been saved for generations to come. The tour is fascinating. A must visit for anyone interested in New York history
