The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is a unique museum housed in two old tenement buildings that teaches about immigration in New York City through the stories of the people who actually lived in the tenement apartments. Their new exhibit Under One Roof shares the stories of three immigrant families as you walk through the old apartment. In this video from PBS NewsHour, take a peek inside the exhibit.
