Field trips aren’t just for kids! In addition to our daily tours and experiences, the Tenement Museum offers learning opportunities for adult groups and individuals. Practice English skills, take a workshop, or attend an event. See details below.

ESOL and Citizenship Programs

Shared Journeys

No matter what language or culture of origin, newcomers to America share many common experiences. In our Shared Journeys program, discussions, classes and tours of the historic tenements provide a unique context for English language learning.

Citizenship Now!

The Museum also partners with Citizenship Now!, a City University of New York program providing free, high quality, and confidential immigration law services for individuals and families.

Your Story, Our Story Workshops

Our Your Story, Our Story workshops explore storytelling and team-building through personal objects, family history, and cultural heritage. We offer private workshops for your company, cultural organization, neighbors, or friends!
