The Tenement Museum has been transformed from dilapidated, structurally compromised tenement buildings built in the 1860s into a cultural destination and civic resource in NYC of immeasurable worth. Come behind the scenes to tour the “forensic architecture” that has translated history into lessons for the future. The Tenement Museum has recently been awarded by the AIANY, The New York Landmarks Conservancy, The Municipal Art Society of New York, Architizer, and many more.
