Just For You

NEW! Customized Museum Programs and Events – Just for You!

The museum is now offering a brand-new, customized family program. Here’s how it works: You round up your family or family & friends group and we’ll develop the perfect family program just for you, based on your interests. Whether you want to spend an hour, an afternoon or all day, we’ve got a plan…

Among the options:

Book a private museum tour or walking tour, choosing among our wide range of themes, exploring old New York, Jewish history and immigration. Or sign up for our personalized tour and step into grandma’s footsteps as we explore your family’s old New York with neighborhood stops that mean the world to you – from the block where your relatives played to the tenement where they lived. Led by museum staff or docents, these tours are appropriate for groups of mixed ages and all interest levels.

Immerse yourself in a family heritage workshop, tailor-made just for you, and preserve your family history and memories. Choose a session with a genealogist who can help you explore your family tree; a workshop with our folklorist who can teach you how to record your family history for the next generation or facilitate a family story swap (captured on video if you don’t want to forget a thing!); or even a supercharged Yiddish lesson. Plus, art and memory projects for kids.

Rent the building and make your family day an all-to-yourselves Day or Evening at the Museum. Bring in a caterer, add music and it’s a one-of-a-kind, only-in-New York family blow-out. Great for all occasions and groups of all ages, up to 350 people. Learn more about space rental >
