This museum allows you to tour one of the oldest surviving tenements in NYC...dating from the 1860's. Just walking through the building is an amazing experience and our guide added just enough information to make it come to life without getting tedious. Each floor is a separate tour and focuses on a specific group of immigrants. We did the Irish Outsiders tour but I hope to eventually do each of the floors. At $25 a floor it is a bit pricey (coming from someone who grew up with the free museums of Wash, DC) but well worth it. And the area around the museum was great to walk through.
