    What to Expect
    Visit: Museum at Eldridge Street, 12 Eldridge St Between Canal and Division Streets, New York City, NY 10002-6204

    Upon arrival, join a docent for a tour inside the National Historic Landmark, the first great Jewish house of worship built by Eastern European immigrants in America. Hear of the 20-year efforts to restore the synagogue to the glory that you see today.

    Dive into the story of immigrant life on the Lower East Side, admiring authentic Yiddish signs, ritual objects, archival documents, and excerpts from the museum's collection of oral histories. See photographs that tell the incredible family stories from the wave of Jewish migration to the Lower East Side, and marvel at the monumental stained-glass window—the only 21st-century addition to this magnificent landmark.

    Guests are welcome to spend additional time after the tour seeing the exhibits.

    A lot of work was put into this synagogue and the results are just spectacular. Seeped in history, nestled inside Chinatown, it's a sight to behold. The tour guide was enthusiastic and patiently answered all our questions.

    I did the Tennement Museum tour and walked over for this tour- so glad that I did! It was a beautiful space, and the docent was able to give the highlights and answer questions. I find myself thinking about the large blue starry window- so glad I went.
