Join us for Family Programs!

A Family Program at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum

  • Sunday, January 31, 10:30 am – 12 pm
  • Saturday, February 6, 10:30 am – 12 pm
Pay a visit some of to some of the families who once lived at 97 Orchard Street and see how they made a home in our historic tenement house. Costumed interpreters playing the roles of former residents, including Adolpho Baldizzi (1934), Harris Levine (1897), Fanny Rogarshevsky (1918), and Bridget Moore (1869), will invite you into their apartments as they share what their lives in 97 Orchard Street were like. Learn about the culture and communities from which they came, what resources they had available to them, and how they might have made a comfortable space for themselves in difficult conditions.

This is a special chance to “meet” residents and explore multiple apartments inside the Tenement Museum on an extended, two hour program. If you enjoy the Confino Family Living History Program, then this is for you!

Tickets are available for advance purchase online or over the phone – or 866-606-7232. Tickets also available at the Visitor Center, in advance and on the day of the program (pending availability). Call 212-982-8402 to find out if tickets are available.
