New York Catacombs by Candlelight

940 reviews
Perfect for history lovers, this tour of the historical Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in Lower Manhattan invites you into the catacombs, allowing you to see its pipe organ and venture to parts of the building that are normally closed to visitors. Beat the crowds on this tour and enjoy a personal encounter with this New York landmark.

We enjoyed the museum as part of the Statue of Liberty Tour. The audio tour was very good and informative. It is very big and you could easily spend hours there. Lots of information boards in different sections of the museum.

The location is great for the views, the boat ride across the bay is really nice. It is interesting to learn about the first families that crossed the big Atlantic pond, great historic icon full of nostalgia. We couldn't trace our ancestors but we still enjoyed walking around the place. There always is a line, so make sure you are not pressed when visiting.

Was grear to see the history. Felt they did a wonderful job showing the immigrant view. Wish we could have stayed longer. Only use the statue boat tour; others are scammers. Don't wait in the line if you already have tickets. There will be a line for tickets when you show up. Just go to the statue tour people closer to the boats. Plan for a full day. Lunch area is crowded. A lot of walking plus stairs.

This very informative about how people immigrated from other countries and passed through Ellis Island on their way to the United States. There is a lot of history for history buffs. Take this trip and the trip to the Statute of Liberty at the same time. Get more value for your money.
