*Family Friendly Tour!

Join the Tenement Museum in partnership with the Museum at Eldridge Street for the final event of the History Hunters series that explores life for Lower East Side kids at the turn-of-the-20th Century. We’ll step into two tenement apartments to learn what life was like for kids in the Levine and Rogarshevsky families. What work did kids do? Where did they find space to play? How did they help their families get by? We’ll also get creative by making objects out of recycled material, just like kids did one hundred years ago.

This event made possible through a grant from PJ Library, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
