Tenement Museum

A tribute to American immigrants

At the Tenement Museum, the focus is on the generations of immigrants who built their lives on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, an iconic neighborhood for families who arrived from all over the world.

Establishing a bond between immigrants and visitors, the Tenement Museum is a milestone in America’s identity, as well as a link between the past and the present in the most superb way, thanks to its guided tours of apartments that recreate the lives of immigrants from the 19th and 20th centuries.

Cool Tip: In the museum shop you’ll find free activities such as lectures, discussions, presentations and gatherings about New York and its history.
