Please note, the Exploring 97 Orchard Street tour will not be available in January and will resume a regular schedule in February.
Explore an entire tenement building in one tour! Go behind the scenes at the Tenement Museum for an in-depth architectural experience. Explore the layers of history preserved in the tenement’s physical fabric, examining structures, surfaces, and hidden spaces. Learn how legislative changes prompted landlords to make upgrades, and how shifting tastes in fashion are reflected in wallpapers, paint choices, and decorations. Hear about the Tenement Museum’s ongoing research and the paint experts, conservators and urban archaeologists who “read” the layers to uncover their stories. Tickets for Exploring 97 Orchard Street are $28 for adults, $23 for students & seniors.
Exploring 97 Orchard Street is available every Thursday evenings. Please select a Thursday date using the availability search on this page.
