The Museum at Eldridge Street is temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Discover one of New York City’s most magnificent hidden treasures. The Museum at Eldridge Street is housed in the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue.

The Museum at Eldridge Street condemns anti-semitism and white supremacy; we stand in solidarity with our friends at the Museum of Jewish Heritage and all our fellow Americans affected by recent events.

Over 130 years ago, Jewish immigrants in America built our museum’s synagogue building as a sanctuary from the violence and intolerance in their home countries. The Museum at Eldridge Street is committed to continuing that legacy. Our landmark building stands as a symbol of peace and freedom and we’re committed to preserving that – not just at our museum but in places around the country. We will continue to stand together with our peers to build a community of unwavering support and justice for all.
