Boring and a complete tourist trap. They now sell cheap scarves and books that are 5 times what you can buy them for on Amazon. The tour was tedious. I get it, they lived 10 to a room, but it lasted forever. My girlfriends and I walked by a huge Chanel collection in the windows of Pilgrim NY and ditched the tour. Ha! If you are a shopper, I would suggest you do the same. The contemporary museum of art on the Bowery is a much better museum as is the Chinese museum on Lafayette. Personally, I know how poor people lived and I love history but enough of the line hanging laundry. It's not that interesting and I felt so pressured in the book shop to buy books and trinkets and souvenirs that I felt like I was in a San Francisco Cable Car Museum Tourist Trap. Um, No thanks, I wouldn't do it again.

Really cool museum experience in which your visit is guided by an actor who tells the story of the tenement from the perspective of an individual who actually lived in the building at some point in history.

Vale la pena visitor este museo. La casa que visitamos pertenecía a unos inmigrantes a EEUU y permanecía en perfectas condiciones. La guia nos gusto mucho, explciaciones muy claras y con ejemplos que te hacían volar la imaginación muchos años atrás. Muy recomendable!

Uno de los museos que merece la pena visitar en Nueva York!! Descubriréis cómo era la vida de un inmigrante en el antiguo Nueva York de la mano de unos guías que hacen el recorrido muy ameno. La reconstrucción de las estancias y la decoración es perfecta. No os lo podéis perder!
