Visit the Museum at Eldridge Street, which the New York Times called “gasp-inducing”. This Museum in the Eldridge Street Synagogue on the Lower East Side is one of the city’s hidden gems.
Built in 1887, the building that houses the Museum at Eldridge Street is a National Historic Landmark. The Museum’s landmark site and collection trace the history of the synagogue’s immigrant founders, newcomers to the New World at a time of pogroms and persecution in Europe.
The Museum at Eldridge Street also boasts a stained-glass window by artist Kiki Smith and architect Deborah Gans. Daily tours by expert guides provide an enlightening and entertaining look into the lives of those who made a mark in the city’s Jewish community.
In addition, the Museum holds special events throughout the year, including concerts, lectures and festivals, making for a varied schedule.
Admission includes a synagogue tour and entry to the musuem’s three main collections.
