GUIDED TOURS 

UNDER ONE ROOF

The stories continue with our new tour and exhibit opening in Fall 2017

The Tenement Museum is comprised of two historic tenement buildings, 97 and 103 Orchard Street. Where 97 Orchard Street served as home to immigrant families between 1863 and 1935, Under One Roof will feature the stories of the immigrants and migrants who started their lives anew at 103 Orchard Street in the decades after World War II and helped to make the Lower East Side one of New York's most diverse neighborhoods. Hear the stories of former resident Bella Epstein, whose parents survived the Holocaust; Jose and Andy Velez, whose seamstress mother left Puerto Rico for new opportunities; and the Wong siblings, whose mother supported the family by sewing in the Chinatown garment shops.
