K-12 School Group Visits

Planning a school visit to the Tenement Museum? We offer specialized 1-hour programs for all students grades K-12 – whether they’re exploring our historic tenements and surrounding Lower East Side neighborhood in-person or virtually. Our hands-on, student-centered programs explore themes of im/migration and include a visit to a restored apartment or the local neighborhood.

Reservations for groups can be scheduled throughout the day from 10 am – 4 pm.  Slots book up quickly, so early reservations are recommended (at least 2 weeks in advance).

Choose from our onsite or virtual options below for more information on pricing, capacity, and descriptions of available programs.


In-Person Visits

Through interactive tours of restored tenement buildings and the Lower East Side neighborhood, students are led by skilled Educators in activities, storytelling, and conversation that connect their experiences to the past. 

Virtual Field Trips

“Visit” our recreated apartments from anywhere in the world – virtually! Our Educators take students into the building or exploring around the Lower East Side neighborhood using pre-recorded video, 360° images, and primary sources.
