This is not in a tourist area. The museum/synagogue is surrounded by Chinatown. I think it's a testament to the immigration history and how it develops and changes the city. When I went there, it was practically empty. There were only four people including myself...More

The guided tour took 45 minutes to an hour. Give it an hour to 1 1/2 hours at the most should do it.
