For the next two Sundays, the Museum at Eldridge Street is inviting families to explore its space as part of its History Illuminated Family Program. The synagogue, which dates back to 1887, underwent a 20-year, $18.5 million renovation which was completed in December 2007. Visitors can sit on “the most expensive seat in the house” (the seat cost $1,100 in 1887) and view Victorian lighting and stained glass. There will also be an opportunity to create a holiday gift.
The program, part of the Preservation Detectives Family Program, begins at 1 p.m. on Dec. 11 and Dec. 18. Families are $15; recommended for kids ages 5 to 10. The museum is located at 12 Eldridge St. (between Canal and Division).
