Taking the kids to NYC for the first time this fall, and want to do the Tenement Museum with them. They are 9 and 12; both very good with listening, and the 9-yo is actually very much into history, more than the 12-yo actually. But the 12-yo did a big Ellis Island project at school last year so she has a good background of the immigrant arrival story.
Anyway, wanted to know if anyone has opinions as to the best tour for kids. I actually don't want to do the Victoria Confino one, as it's for kids of all ages with a costumed speaker (I don't want to be in there with a bunch of crazy toddlers; my kids are better suited to the adult tours). Any thoughts between Hard Times, Sweatshop Workers or Irish Outsiders? (My 9-yo isn't old enough for "Shop Life" and I'd rather have the turn-of-the-century history than the more modern Under One Roof.)
