The Tenement Museum has a strict "no photo" policy, as they believe it takes away from the visitor experience—"We are trying to facilitate an interactive experience with our visitors. It really is what makes us unique," the Museum's Jon Pace told us. "All the tours we offer are led by an educator." That all changed last night, however.

For one night only, the museum allowed cameras inside for their Snapshot event. During two separate sessions, participants (see: #tenementsnaps) were allowed free reign on each floor, and along the way could document the Museum’s re-created homes and historic German beer saloon.

Photographer Tod Seelie was there, and captured some beautiful shots from all corners of the museum. Click through for a look.

If you were unable to make it, this isn't the first time the Museum has hosted an event like this, and we're guessing it won't be the last.
