Private Tenement Museum Tour (Limited Tickets)
September 23rd  -  2pm to 3pm

The Tenement Museum in NYC is a historic museum that offers immersive experiences of the city's immigrant history. Located at 97 Orchard Street, it showcases the daily lives of immigrant families who lived in the tenement building over the decades, providing insights into their struggles and contributions to American society.
This will be a 60-minute interactive tour visit, led by a museum educator. During the visit, participants explore the history of 97 Orchard Street, focusing on the lives of the families who lived there over a 75-year period. They journey back to the 1870s, experiencing a lager beer saloon run by John and Caroline Schneider, and then visit their bedroom. The tour also transports participants to the Great Depression era, highlighting Max Marcus's auction house. Throughout the visit, there are opportunities for questions, providing a deep understanding of immigrant family life and community resilience in New York City's history.
Club J-1 is an exclusive network of J-1 interns and trainees plus their friends from all over the world. Through this network, participants will be linked to other interns and trainees to share their experiences and meet new people.
