  • If you're in New York, you can't miss Little Italy anyway. And there is this neat little Museum, which you should necessarily visit. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The Museum shows how Italians immigrated to hundreds of thousands in the United States, where they came from. Many relics from ancient times are shown. The Museum is very interesting and Nice.

  • My husband is Italian-American originally from NYC, whose grandparents migrated to NYC in the 1920s. For me, this was a good experience to learn about the Italian culture and heritage, as well as the challenges many Italian Americans faced years ago as immigrants. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. Also, many options for some fine Italian style dining. I fell in love with Little Italy, although my husband says its not what it used to be back in the day.
  • Got there during a down time so I was the only visitor. Manager was out sick so I got a personal tour from Joseph, the President. What a treat! He was so knowledgeable, intriguing, and kind. They have some really interesting artifacts at this place. They aren't labeled super well, so the tour is a must. It's a small Museum, just one floor, but it packs in so many artifacts and history, including a threatening letter from the Black Hand to the family of the president of this place! It is inexpensive and will take you less than an hour. A must-do if you are traveling through Little Italy!
