Ellis Island Immigration Museum
Ellis Island is currently fully open. Liberty Island is also open, though access to the interior of the Statue of Liberty Monument is restricted as a security measure. For more information, call the Circle Line Ferry at 212-269-5755, or check their website, www.statueoflibertyferry.com.
Over 40% of the U.S. population descend from the 17 million immigrants that have passed through Ellis Island from 1892 to 1954. The three story Ellis Island Museum is housed in the same building that the immigrants came through in those 64 years. Ferry boats leave from Battery Park for the 27 acre island, including an option to visit the Statue of Liberty, located on an island nearby.
You can get to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty on the Circle Line Statue of Liberty Ferry which leaves from the Battery in Lower Manhattan and from Liberty State Park in New Jersey. more...
