Honestly wouldn't have gone if it wasn't part of the Statue of Liberty ferry tour. And I wouldn't have regretted it. The museum is certainly big and informative, but the subject itself it's just a bit boring in my opinion. Unless you think you'll enjoy...More

More interesting then I thought it would be, especially if you follow some of the stories around the individuals that passed through processing centre. Also has a decent enough cafe with space to sit outside

A very interesting and at times moving presentation of historic immigration to USA. We had an early start and skipped the visit to Statue of Liberty. That meant the exhibition was relatively quiet and uncrowded. The accompanying audio was first rate with many personal accounts...More

Ellis Island is a great place to explore our history as an immigrant nation. It was amazing to see the place where millions of immigrants came to find a better life. We took the ferry from Liberty State Park. It’s a fairly easy place to...More
