Apartment Tours

Apartment tours explore historically recreated homes and the immigrant and migrant families who lived in them in the 19th and 20th centuries. Along with a glimpse of the past, visitors glean insights from educators who offer historical perspectives that relate to current conversations about im/migration.

The Tenement Museum will continue to require proof of COVID vaccination for all visitors, guests and employees at this time. In addition, we are requiring masks be worn inside our Visitor Center and on Museum tours.

Children under 5 can attend a neighborhood walking tour. Visitors who are not fully vaccinated can visit us virtually through our virtual programs and events.

Please take a look at our COVID-19 Safety Guidelines and available tours below.
