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.
