A Tenement Story: The History of The Tenement Museum

The Tenement Museum tells the uniquely American stories of immigrants, migrants, and refugees in the ongoing creation of our nation.

"In this volume, you'll meet some of the people whose stories we tell every day. You'll get a glimpse into the lives they lived and, we hope, develop a deeper appreciation for their struggles and achievements. You'll get a taste of the lives of our immigrant forebearers, people who boldly left behind everything and everyone they'd ever known, people who bet their fates on the hope that they could build better lives for themselves and their families in this new place called America and, in the process, helped build a new nation." -Kevin Jennings, Tenement Museum President

This important publication is a culmination of over 30 years of dedicated stewardship of 2 Tenement buildings on Orchard Street through vivid photographs of the last two centuries. 

Your purchase helps us realize our vision of a society that embraces and values the fundamental role of immigration in the evolving American identity.
