Apartment Tours

At Home in 1933

Visit the recreated 1930s apartment of Adolpho and Rosaria Baldizzi, Italian immigrants raising their children in 97 Orchard Street during the Great Depression. Learn about how they persevered through the most severe economic downturn in history, making the most of what they had in their small tenement apartment. Explore home life in a time of national crisis and how the story of one family offers insight into our world today.

An alternate combination apartment/walking tour version of this program is currently available, Day in the Life: 1933!

Please note: Masking is required on all indoor tours and in the Visitor Center. Children under 5 cannot attend building tours at this time. Instead, they can attend a neighborhood walking tour or visit us virtually.
