ABOUT THE TENEMENT MUSEUM
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.
TENEMENT MUSEUM 2018 GALA
On April 24, 2018, the Tenement Museum will celebrate thirty years of storytelling - sharing the stories of ordinary individuals, whose stories woven together illustrate the rich tapestry of our national identity. At our 2018 annual gala, we will highlight the stories we tell every day at our Museum in tandem with the thousands of stories we have received from Americans living all over the nation through our digital Your Story, Our Story exhibit. Your donations in support of this event will help support the ongoing mission of the Museum.
The Tenement Museum's Board of Trustees invites you to support this important cause by making a donation to our Crowdrise campaign today.
