November 8th 2011 - The Tenement Museum opened the
doors to their new Visitor and Education Center at the corner of Orchard
and Delancey. The Center gives the museum 10,000 square feet of
additional space, including classrooms, a screening room and a
purpose-built gallery space.
The Lower East Side Tenement Museum tells the stories of immigrant families. Located in the heart of Manhattan's Lower East Side, which has been an immigrant portal for 200 years, 97 Orchard Street was home to an estimated 7,000 people from over 20 nations from 1863 to 1935. Inside, visitors view restored apartments and learn about the struggles of past generations in the hope of providing historical perspective on the experiences of today's newcomers.
