Tickets, opening hours, and location


The Tenement Museum can only be visited by guided tour

The Museum offers a variety of educator led apartment tours inside our two historic tenement buildings — 97 and 103 Orchard Street — and walking tours within the Lower East Side neighborhood to educate visitors about the immigrant experience in the United States.
