Lower East Side Tenement Museum

Revealing the Past. Challenging the Future.

The Tenement Museum tells the true stories of American immigrant families through recreated apartments in a historic tenement building constructed in 1863. We also offer neighborhood walking tours, evening programs, free English language classes and programs for school groups.
