Lower East Side Tenement Museum
The Tenement Museum tells stories of immigrant families who lived in 97 Orchard Street, an historic tenement building that was home to an estimated 7,000 people from over 20 nations from 1863–1935. Guided tours are the heart of the Museum. Visitors view restored apartments of past residents and hear their stories of life on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The tours use history for considering the present, encouraging dialogue around issues relating to contemporary immigration. The Museum’s education programs include age-appropriate tours and activities.
