A visit to the Tenement Museum is a unique experience which will bring the history of the Lower East Side and its surrounding environs to life.
There are three ways of visiting the museum:
• Visitors can tour the building and explore the restored apartments and businesses of those who lived and worked here at the height of the immigrant experience.
• Interpreters in costume take on the role of former residents who once inhabited 97 Orchard Street.
• Get to know the neighborhood up close and personal as you take a walking tour and discover the real Lower East Side and the many ways that immigrants influenced the neighborhood, city and beyond.
A visit to the Tenement Museum will enlighten visitors to the importance and depth of the influence immigrants had on the development of the region and became the foundation of America as we know it today.
