Celebrate Immigrant Heritage Month with a visit to the New York City Tenement Museum #IHM2018 #ImmigrantHeritageMonth
The Tenement Museum of NYC is one of New York’s best historical and educational museums. It honors New York’s immigrant history by bringing different immigrant experiences to life. It’s located in the heart of NYC’s Lower East Side neighborhood – we highly recommend a visit!
The Tenement Museum preserves and interprets the history of immigration through the personal experiences of the generations of newcomers who settled in and built lives on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, America’s iconic immigrant neighborhood; forges emotional connections between visitors and immigrants past and present; and enhances appreciation for the profound role immigration has played and continues to play in shaping America’s evolving national identity.
Not located in NYC? There are plenty of educational resources available through the site! Check them out here.
