Through interactive tours of the tenement buildings and Lower East Side neighborhood, students investigate universal themes of cultural identity, discrimination, and human rights. All programs are led by skilled Educators who engage students in activities, storytelling, and conversation to connect their experiences to the past. All programs are aligned with the National Education Standards, the C3 framework, and multi-state Social Studies Scope and Sequence.
Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, two weeks out from last dose, is required before taking a tour for all visitors ages 5+. Per New York City mandate, children under 5 can attend a neighborhood walking tour, as long as they are accompanied by a vaccinated adult. Visitors who are not vaccinated, partially vaccinated, or are unable to be vaccinated can visit us virtually through our virtual programs and events.
