Ellis Island Immigration Museum is a unique and thought-provoking place to visit for locals and visitors alike. While this spot is significant to American history in general, for many it is a special experience to visit an important piece in their family's story.
When visiting Ellis Island Immigration Museum it's difficult to not imagining the millions of immigrants who passed through the walls of the tiled building. The museum is packed with information that can sometimes overwhelm you—no matter how much you see, how much you read, or how much you listen to the audio guide there's always more to learn. You are sure to leave with a deep and profound appreciation for the tremendous journey that the millions of individuals who helped build this country went through.
