What our members are saying

… During the difficult time of the pandemic, the Tenement Museum’s virtual programming were tremendously valuable to me personally – and helped me not to just survive, but to stay positive and keep learning, and to truly feel grateful for all that I have in my life. Hearing the stories of immigrants and their resilience helped me to find that resilience in myself, and to recognize that going through the pandemic wasn’t so bad! I am proud to be a member, donor, and participant – and I am always excited to talk about the incredible work that the Tenement Museum is doing.— Sharon, British Columbia
