Such an important part of who we are and why we are! I felt a special closeness being here. The Hard Hat tour of the hospital was especially interesting and informative.

This is well worth a visit. Great history and you could see exactly how people went through the whole process. Lovely views of looking back into Manhattan as well

The history of Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island we’re truly brought to life by our wonderful guide Remy. The weather was poor but we worked round it. It certainly didn’t detract from a very informative and interesting visit.

Decided to get off the ferry on this visit after Liberty Island & so glad I did. Really didn't expect the quality & expertise of the restoration work. Reminded me of The Godfather movie!

Ellis Island truly sums up the American Dream. It gives an insight into the thousands of people who left their homes in search of a better life in America. I used the computer terminals to trace my ancestor who left Ireland in 1900. It was...More
