The Tenement Museum offers interesting programs, events, and experiences beyond our regularly scheduled tours that provide visitors the opportunity to explore the themes of migration and immigration through the history of food, music, health, politics, and more.
Upcoming Special Evening Tours & Programs:
Every Thursday evening the Tenement Museum hosts special tours, programs, and events not offered daily.
A Seat in the Classroom: Asian Americans, Access and Education
Join us for a free panel discussion on the complex issue of education access for immigrant communities who lack the resources vital for upward workplace mobility and access to the American dream.
Costumed Interpreter Tours:
Discover life as an immigrant in 1916 through the eyes of 14-year-old Victoria Confino. A costumed actor portraying Victoria provides a first-person perspective inside her apartment. A family-friendly tour, visitors can engage with Victoria, explore her home, and ask questions about her daily life and the journey of becoming American.
