The Jewish Museum of Florida at the southern end of Washington Avenue occupies two historic buildings formerly used as synagogues. The 1936 structure at 301 Washington Ave., a synagogue for 50 years, was designed by Art Deco architect Henry Hohauser, who also did the Essex House Hotel. Featuring a copper dome, a marble bimah and 80 stained glass windows, it is on the National Register of Historic Places. Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and students and free on Saturdays. Closed all Jewish holidays.
