For 30 years, the Tenement Museum has preserved the Lower East Side’s iconic immigrant history. At the Museum, two historic tenement buildings serve as time capsules of immigrant life from the 19th century to the present day. Inside the buildings, the Museum uses recreated tenement apartments and preserved ‘ruin’ apartments to tell the true stories of immigrant families who followed their aspirations to America.
