I had never been to a synagogue before I came here the other day. The docent led a very informative and interesting tour, and the architecture is BEAUTIFUL!!! There is so much culture and history in this museum. Definitely worth the visit.

This was wonderful! Mondays are "pay what you wish" days and we joined a really lovely tour at 11am. We learned so much about Eastern European Jews that arrived in NY in the late 1800s/early 1900s.

Beautiful, unique, and perfect for taking beautiful photos. I’m told the tours are great, but they are currently suspended right now. There is an online guide you can get with a QR code, and it is basic, but sufficient. Everyone on site is very friendly and helpful. There is a small museum on the first floor.

June is pay what you wish month, but it’s normally 15 dollars. Time slots can be arranged online and are 45 minutes long. During my time, only one other single woman and a man with two teens were there.

Highly recommend this gorgeous synagogue tucked into China Town. The architecture and stained glass will appeal to design enthusiasts, the history lesson of Judaism in American and New York will appeal to historians.

It's nice to see this building has been preserved so beautifully.

We found out about this synagogue by fluke, and what a find. If you are in the area, you must go and see this beautiful synagogue. The building and the care that has been taken in its renovation is outstanding. We were very fortunate to arrive when a tour had just started. Brad who lead the tour, was so passionate about the building, it gave a wonderful insight to the work and the community that had built this synagogue.
Do try and go

This gorgeous restored synagogue dating from 1887 is now a museum. It has been restored to its original glory with modern adaptations for safety and to meet building codes. The history of the structure and of the people who made it possible is gripping. We had a tour that was led by the manager. He was most knowledgeable. Anyone interested in this area of the country and the great migration from eastern Europe to the USA will not want to miss it.

Beautiful building. Tour guide was wonderful. Her explanations were fascinating and thorough. Walking around the neighborhood that has become part of Chinatown on the lower East side was also fascinating. Went early before the museum opened. Interesting to see deliveries to the Chinese restaurants and bakeries. Stopped in one for a delicious pastry.

This was a great experience - interesting, fun, a lot of warmth and a beautiful place with so much history, culture and heritage. Our docent, Brad, was so knowledgeable and full of great stories and humor. Covers not just the synagogue but history of Jewish settlement in the US and the lower east side. Highly recommend!!!
