Much to look at. We tried researching our ancestors (we are from Italy) but did not have enough time to search through the hundreds of thousands of names. We took the ferry over which was nice. Definitely a place to visit and spend time at...More
Amazing to learn the history and see the walk of names. Be prepared to look for family line names and take a picture.
The future museum looks like it will be great.
Can spend as much time as you want, as the boats come and...More
We visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island as a part of our tour group. I could have stayed much longer than the allotted time given for this activity. The museum was very interesting and depicted the process immigrants had to undergo to gain...More

We did this tour as it was part of the tour with the Statue of Liberty. The cafe was nice and the museum was interesting. It was a good insight to see how the settlers came to America. Very good interesting facts which we enjoyed.
Took the ferry from New Jersey to Ellis island and statue of liberty. Really God and interesting visit to the museum which is mainly pictorial but well set ou and worth a visit
Did not get off the ferry got the statue of liberty due...More
My Grandfather went thru Ellis Island when he came to the U.S. in the 20's.
You could almost imagine the experience of an individual as you walked thru, looked at each exhibit and read the historical background.
I hope everyone will get the chance to...More
Wow is all that I can say. You could spend the whole day there along with the Statue of Liberty. See the movie first, it is absolutely worth your time. Pick up an audio tour if you want more details although the film had told...More
When I began looking into the sights of New York, I had chosen not to include Ellis Island as I believed it wouldn't be something that I'd enjoy. However, as it was included as part of my trip to The Statue Of Liberty, I made...More
We will be in NYC on July 24th. I read that the Statue will reopen on July 4th. I also read that to go inside the statue, museums etc folks need to order tickets in advance. When I looked on the website I only found information about the ferry service but not about tours etc. We are also interested in Ellis Island but from the sounds of it, that is still closed. I would appreciate any information and advice about tickets, tours etc. We are a family of 4, two adults and two teens. Thanks!

You just have to keep checking their website as they haven't yet announced when the tickets are going on sale. Here's a similar question and at that time their Facebook page said that they anticipated that the tickets would go on sale mid-April. So, it could be any day now. tripadvisor.com/…48442153

Has NYC fully recovered? Seen another thread saying Ellis island is due to open tomorrow, thats good to read. This time (exact to the sunday afternoon) we were flying into JFK to a closing down subway system and watching everything close in front of our eyes :( So has everything re-opened now? Would love to come back one day and see NYC how it should be seen. Ironically we decided to stay at home this October and visit family on the south west coast of the UK, we are due to have a...More

Ellis island will reopen but a lot of the archives is still in storage somewhere while they figure out to make the site safe from future storm damage. South Street Seaport is only partially recovered. The most severely-damaged areas in the Rockaways are still not rebuilt. I was walking around the financial district a few weeks ago and noticed that there is still one of the giant generator trucks that had been brought in for the buildings that didn't have power, so I guess there's still...More

No - you do NOT want these either of these passes. While they may save a little money they waste a lot of time and insome cases prevent you from getting to the parts of the sights you want. For SoL you must get tickets direct from the official site - statuecruises.com - online far in advance. Crown tickets sell out at least 3 months in advance and Pedestal/Museum tickets sell out at least 3 weeks in advance. there is no pass that can get you these tickets. (You can trade the pass for a...More
