East Boston Immigration Center project

Learn about the creation of the East Boston Immigration Center exhibit.

Learn about an ambitious initiative to transform and restore a former Jewish mortuary chapel in East Boston into a state-of-the-art exhibit hall on the history of immigration in the Boston area. The center will provide an inspiring context for exploring the experiences of Jewish, Irish, Italian, and other immigrant groups who came through the Port of Boston during the 19th and 20th centuries.
