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

If you have ancestors that came to New York on a ship and came through Ellis Island then you will definitely want to do research on them. Of course you don't have to go to New York to do this type of research but nothing...More

The museum and building are very interesting, would recommend getting the headset at the beginning as the tour is fascinating. The headset tour takes you through the museum as if you were an immigrant which is interesting.
