I've visited this museum twice now and taken two different tours. They have several tours and I'd go again on a different tour every time I get to NYC. The tours last about 1.5 hours and the guides are very good. You can see the...More
This museum is wonderful. Taking a tour of this Lower East Side tenement and seeing how people lived there in the 19th and early 20th centuries is fascinating and moving. We added a walking tour of the neighbourhood which is equally good. And the gift...More
The entire family strongly recommend the food tour.
You can bring your teenagers and they will also find this interesting.
Our guide Daryl was very good.
After this tour we will visit the candy store and the Essex marked (this should be branded even more)...More
We did the Hard Times and Under One Roof tour, which we booked online the day before so we didn’t miss out. While both tours were good we preferred the Under One Roof tour as it looked at immigrant like in the 1950-1980’s so was...More
This museum is a thoughtful, informative, and fascinating look at the experiences of thousands of immigrants who came to the US from the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries. The tours (there are six) acquaint modern-day visitors with the lives, challenges, and aspirations of our ancestors as...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.

More adults, but 12 years old and up might find it interesting. I wouldn’t say good for toddlers or elementary only b/c there is a lot of standing in a small room listening to an educator. Have not done any of the walking tours, so no comment. Hard times tour I think is the most popular and one of the 1st ones created.
