My favorite museum in NYC, it's an immersive dive into what the Lower East Side was like for every different group of immigrants, and it's incredibly detailed.

Take a deep dive into NYC immigrant history at this wonderful storytelling-based museum. It's great for kids and adults alike. Choose from a few different tours...book online in advance.

The Tenement Museum is a great place to learn about the history of our city's roots. You'll be transported back in time to see how early immigrants lived in the tenements on the lower East side. The tours typically last one hour and usually require stair climbing. Not good for children under 6…
