Basic Information

The Tenement Museum preserves and interprets the history of immigration through the personal experiences of the generations of newcomers who settled in and built lives on Manhattan's Lower East Side, America's iconic immigrant neighborhood; forges emotional connections between visitors and immigrants past and present; and enhances appreciation for the profound role immigration has played and continues to ply in shaping America's evolving national identity.

With Tenement Tours, Neighborhood Walking Tours, and special Virtual Events, the museum invites you to explore this special site and its stories.
