Virtual Gala: Rebuild, Retell, Renew

April 29, 2021

Please join us on April 29 for our first ever virtual gala for all! Everyone is invited to register for this epic program exploring how we will Rebuild and strengthen our beloved tenements with our historical preservation project, Retell our histories with a new permanent exhibit on the story of Black New Yorkers in Lower Manhattan, and Renew our connection to our mission and to you, our Tenement Museum community, as we honor the 4,000 donors who helped us survive the pandemic shutdown.

By hosting this year’s gala program virtually, we are able to open this evening to our entire Tenement Museum community. Just like on our virtual tours, you are welcome to join us from anywhere in the world.

We hope you will consider making a donation with your free registration. As the last year has shown us, a donation of any amount provides crucial support for the Museum’s continued survival.

To support the virtual gala in a larger way, see more information on sponsorships and tickets which are available with special perks here.
