Mike was our docent on Sunday, January 6. He was outstanding, presented the history of the synagogues in a very engaging manner. He shared stories that made us laugh.

Saw the Houdini exhibit and I was not disappointed. It was so fascinating to learn the real truth about his life and death after being mislead by movies after all these years, This was my second visit to this museum because it is so interesting.

This museum is small, but the two exhibits were interesting. The tour of the two synagogues was informative and worthwhile.

The museum is very interesting. Take also the tour to see the 2 synagogues. The guide May be 80 or 85 and he Knowles very good how to share the history of his community with humour.

We were blown away. It is a terrific exhibit. We're going back to see the entire museum! Make it a full Jewish experience. Go to Attmann's deli for a pastrami or corned beef sandwich. Yummy! Right around the corner.

The lot is pretty scary and I wouldn’t leave my car there except for a short time. Lots of glass on the lot. I would rather park on the street but watch out for glass there too.
