A trip to Ellis Island is a series of powerful moments—looping around the Statue of Liberty and approaching the island by boat, disembarking at the dock, and listening to the memories of our nation’s early immigrants on headphones as you walk through the same spaces they navigated after their long journey. Check out the interactive Ellis Kid exhibit, too. Many people don’t realize that the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island are both accessed by the same ferry circuit. You can definitely do these landmarks in one day with one ticket, but it might be worth splitting them up to really make the most of both.
It is a place where you will learn the immigration history. It is part of the Statue of Liberty trip.
Just imagine arriving here with your whole life in a suitcase and a trunk. This is a must see!
