“Revealing the Past. Challenging the Future” (Tenement Museum)

The Tenement Museum is located in a five-floor 1863 tenement at 108 Orchard Street in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Since about 2008, the Tenement Museum has used the slogan, “Revealing the Past. Challenging the Future.”


Tenement Museum
OUR MISSION

Profile
A guided tour is the only way into the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, a five-floor landmark 1863 tenement with apartments that have been decorated to recall the lives of actual residents. The museum strives to promote tolerance, reminding visitors of the challenges facing modern-day immigrants by presenting the struggles faced by those in the past. Guides encourage discussion and often begin a tour by asking visitors about their own ethnic roots—and whether any of their ancestors passed through Ellis Island or lived on the Lower East Side
