The Tenement Museum does not offer a Library Membership, though we do have various individual membership levels that may interest your patrons, which are listed on our Membership page. Alternatively, we also offer private virtual tours. During a private virtual tour, an educator guides participants through a historic tour via Zoom, using oral histories, images, documents, and videos. These events lend themselves to lively conversations between participants and the educator. To learn more, visit our Private Virtual Events page!
