The Museum tells the story of immigrant families and visitors view restored apartments of past residents from different time periods.
Experience the heart of the immigrant saga through the music of Irish America, then tour the restored home of the Moore family, Irish-Catholic immigrants who left their home in the Five Points to start a new life in Kleindeutschland. Explore how this family dealt with being 'outsiders' in 97 Orchard and how they coped with the death of their child in 1869.
The Museum's walking tours explore the Lower East Side and the American immigrant experience
Taste dumplings, fried plantains, cream puffs and more while exploring the immigrant experience and some of the ways immigrant foods have shaped American food. Note: This tour does not enter any buildings, other than a short introduction and conclusion in our Visitors Center.
