Our family did not realize how much Ellis island has to do. We made a day of it. It was relaxing, informative, wholesome, and bonding. This country didn’t just happen. It was made and Ellis takes you through the steps of how the USA came...More

Wow, we could have spent all day, if we’d listened to all the audio (everyone gets a headset) and seen all the museums. Amazing how the immigration process worked. Thankfully the building was renovated so we can learn about our history.
