    One of the top 10 quintessential NYC experiences. Around 7000 families lived in these tenements from the mid 19th - 20th centuries. Amazing tours and bonus: the BEST bookshop in NYC (seriously).

    The 'Hard Times' guided tour was fantastic. Really great tour guides, incredible true stories of people who lived there. Really helps to understand immigrant's challenges and triumphs.

    I went on both the Shop Life and Irish Outsiders tour. Both were interactive and engaging. The guides were knowledgeable and helped the space come to life. Order tickets online as they often sell out!

    This is the best experience in Manhatten. Three of us got a lovely guider who show us some flats from the early 1900's, helped to discover their family life and struggle, get the immigrant lifestyle.

    Hard Times tour 👍 Book online in advance since this seems to be the most popular one. I don't recommend this tour on a hot summer day though. No A/C. Just small fans circulating the hot air.

    Yes the tours are a little pricey, but there is free admission for AAM members! The guides are very informative and I learned so much on the Shop Life tour.

    Wonderful museum inside an old tenement building, telling the history of New York and the Lower East Side through the lives of migrant families 1865-1935. Great guides, incredible stories.

    Learn about the living conditions many immigrants in NYC had to deal with back in the day. Great place to learn about NYC history. They have a great giftshop/bookstore.

    One of my favorite places in NY. A great place to learn more about the lives of immigrants that made the city what it is today. All tours are great, I loved the Hard Times.

    About 7,000 people, mostly immigrants, lived in this five-story building from 1863 to 1935. Tours trace the lives of five typical families. - Green Guide Editor

    Great museum and they seven different tours that are guided by well educated staff. Have to come back...they take you through the lives of people who lived in these buildings 150 years ago untouched

    This National Historic Site was home to approximately 7000 people from 20 nations between 1863 and 1935. Take a tour and learn about the personal stories of some of the early settlers of Manhattan.

    This is a tour based museum, the website will tell you the duration. Tours can sell out but you can buy online or at the museum. Take the Foods of LES tour when it's warm and bring your appetite!

    We toured “the shops.” We both felt like the tour was twice as long as it should have been; like they stretched a 45 minute story into 1.5 hours. That said, the concept behind the place is awesome.

    Museum is guided tours only. So make sure you book one on their site in advance of going.

    Not your typical museum where you read plaques of info. Here you're engaged with the storyteller (tour guide), learning the lives of the different people who lived in these apartments. Check it out.

    Museum guides interpret several generations of immigrant life in a five-story tenement building. Tours last 1hr, are limited to 15 people, and should be booked in advance. No A/C. - Green Guide Editor

    Tours are super interesting and give a vivid sense of how hard life was for residents of the tenements. Would totally recommend!

    Tours are quite expensive - they could combine several tours in the same amount of time (1 is 1 hr for only 2 family residences) as the apartment itself was quite interesting. Great bookshop though.

    Tours are story telling based and focus on difficulties met by immigrants in the 19th century. It was entertaining too but you'll only get to know one floor per tour and each one will cost 25 dollars

    Informative but pricey... it kind of reminds me of some of the apartments I grew up in NYC, lol. Pre-gentrification.

    Now visit the prototype of a Lower East Side tenement where many of those immigrants lived. The only way to see the museum is by guided tour, which takes place frequently between 10am and 6pm
