Construction to prepare three floors of its recently acquired 103 Orchard Street building for exhibition, program, and administrative space, and to replace the roof and cornice.

The Museum’s 103 Orchard Street Construction and Renovation project will prepare the top three floors of its 1888 tenement into exhibit and flexible program and office space. The exhibit space will recreate apartments in which immigrant families lived to tell the stories of Jewish Holocaust survivors, Puerto Rican migrants and Chinese immigrants who lived in this tenement post-World War II. Flexible program and office space will allow the Museum to provide additional space for educational activities and better accommodate its growing staff. The project enhances the Museum's mission and is the centerpiece of the Museum’s capital campaign and integral to its five-year strategic plan to increase visitorship.
