Sharing Stories of the Immigrant Experience

The Tenement Museum celebrates the enduring stories that define and strengthen what it means to be American. We share stories of the immigrant and migrant experience through immersive guided tours, educational content and programs, and thought leadership, with one important goal — to advance the understanding of immigration and to highlight its role in the ongoing creation of our nation.HFB-320 Hansa Jet, Charter Express (Plastic model kit) 1 72 Amodel 72365

Throughout history and into the present day, millions of people moved to and around the United States in pursuit of the American Dream. While it may at times be easy to see the gaps between “us” and “them,” a closer look reveals how these newest citizens demonstrate the human spirit of our nation’s ideals. And, the understanding that results is that it doesn’t matter why they came; what matters is that they did.
