This was supposed to be the highlight of my 30 day trip as I have read extensively about immigration westward. What a huge let-down! First, it took us 30 minutes to find the place. The sign was there, the huge statue was there, but where was the #@^!* museum? We finally found it tucked back in the woods, behind construction which is supposed to be the NEW immigrant museum. There were quite a few "displays" inside, in no particular order. If you were not well-versed on westward immigration, most of them would have made little sense. We waited around for the film which is shown every hour. UNBELIEVABLE!! IT was grainy, terribly out of focus, and although the information was interesting, it was surely narrated by a park service employee. How much would it have cost to hire a person who could read with expression?? As we left, it was all I could do to keep from telling the park service employee that they should be ashamed of themselves.
When we got outside, we thought that we could at least go look at the magnificent memorial statue. No such luck. Due to the construction, I guess, they have it fenced off so that you have to view it from a distance.
All in all, the worst experience of our 30 day vacation. Actually, the ONLY bed experience!
