“A True Home for American History!”

We tell the stories of 97 Orchard Street. Built on Manhattan's Lower East Side in 1863, this tenement apartment building was home to nearly 7000 working class immigrants.They faced challenges we understand today: making a new life, working for a better future, starting a family with limited means. In recognizing the importance of this seemingly ordinary building, the Tenement Museum has re-imagined the role that museums can play in our lives.

It's not the most convenient that you have to book a timed tour to go through the tenement, but it's worth it. The guides are incredible storytellers, really highlighting the wild twists and turns some of the residents experienced, getting people on the tour involved in discussions... it's much more fun than just reading panels. It wasn't a long tour, but it was really striking and unforgettable. Definitely worth the visit!
