The museum is interesting and informative. It's been wonderfully restored to it's original grandeur. Could almost "feel" the way it was for people traveling through years ago. It was an enjoyable afternoon.

The architecture of the building was very interesting. The displays were very informative if you stood and read everything. Needs more interactive or living history to make it more effective and interesting for the visitors.

We went on the hard hat tour. It was well worth it. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. There are many photo ops on the tour. Next time I will opt for the photography tour, which allows tripods. Immigrants with health issues were not immediately...More

The Ellis Island Immigration Center and Liberty Island Ferry is a must see in NYC. Ellis Island Museum contains photos and stories from the period when it was the entry way into the US from 1892 until 1954. But it's a lot of photos, films...More
