|Facility:||Lower East Side Tenement Museum|
|Description:||Built on Manhattan's Lower East Side in 1863, this actual restored tenement apartment building was home to nearly 7000 working class immigrants.
They faced challenges we understand today: making a new life, working for a better future, starting a family with limited means.
In recognizing the importance of this seemingly ordinary building, the Tenement Museum has re-imagined the role that museums can play in our lives.
The museum has a mission to build tolerance and historical perspective through the presentation and interpretation of the variety of immigrant and migrant experiences on Manhattan's Lower East Side, a gateway to America.
Of particular significance to Jewish families, but anyone who has immigrated to these shores needs to visit this museum.
