Open House New York
October 20 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Open House New York is the city’s largest architecture and design event! The Museum is free all day for self-guided visitors or guided tours. Hourly tours with expert docents will tell the story of our home, the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue, and its 20-year, $20 million restoration. Completed in 2007, the meticulous restoration reversed decades of neglect and decay, uncovering fascinating history and raising preservation questions along the way. Tours will also explore the main sanctuary’s newest installation – a 2011 stained glass window designed by contemporary artist Kiki Smith and architect Deborah Gans.
