Lower East Side Tenement Museum


The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is the first homestead of urban and working class immigrants to ever be interpreted in the United States. Through guided tours of its restored tenement at 97 Orchard Street, the Museum explores the struggles and triumphs of immigrants past and present. Located on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, an immigrant portal for almost two centuries, 97 Orchard Street was home to an estimated 7,000 people from over 20 nations between 1863 and 1935. In late 2007, The Tenement will open the restored apartment of the Irish Catholic Moore family. The Tenement’s mission is to promote tolerance and historical perspective through the presentation and interpretation of the variety of immigrant and migrant experiences on Manhattan's Lower East Side, a gateway to America. The Tenement is a designated National Historic Site, affiliated with the National Park Service and a featured property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
