Located in the lower east side, the Tenement museum showcases different ethnic families through different periods of immigration during the late 19th century and early 20th century. Tours can last from 90 minutes to two hours.
Backstory and Context
German, Italian, Irish, Jewish, and Catholic families are represented in the museum. Through sweatshop life to parents raising children in a three room apartment, a visitor can see what life was truly like for these families that occupied one building in New York City.
