About us


MoRUS is a volunteer-run small history museum of grassroots activism. We tell the story of efforts to create community spaces on the Lower East Side, especially those that “reclaim” space that has been taken over by city bureaucracies or corporations. We highlight the political implications of how social structures shape and control our space and take a long-term historical perspective on how the urban landscape evolves through cycles.
