Museum at Eldridge Street Synagogue information
This landmark house of worship, built in 1887, was once the center of Jewish life, before falling into squalor in the 1920s. Left to rot, the synagogue was restored following a 20-year-long, $20-million restoration that was completed in 2007, and it now shines with original splendor. Museum admission includes a tour of the synagogue, which departs hourly, with the last one starting at 4pm.
