Press Tour Policy: Tenement Museum policy permits a member of the press group one complimentary pass to a tour or program, which are given at the discretion of the Associate Director of Media and Communications on the basis of credentials and proposed coverage. This is because the Museum is seen by guided tour only, has a limited capacity of tickets for our programming each day and relies on ticket sales to keep up with its operating costs. Thank you.
