Membership

Explore and enjoy the Lower East Side as a member of the Tenement Museum.

Become a member and visit as often as you’d like—for free. Be the first to hear about new programs and events, and receive a discount in our shop.

Your Tenement Museum membership supports school programs, educator training, and tour development. Members make it possible for us to tell the stories of immigrant families who followed their dreams to America’s shores and built our communities and our nation. Their faith in our shared future remains a powerful symbol of America’s possibilities.
