Where is Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration?
For about 350,000 people, this waiting ended with deportation and thus with bitter tears. Since 1990, the three-story Immigration Museum has opened its doors to everyone.
Among other things, it provides information about the entry formalities at that time, as well as an electronic archive with the names of the immigrants processed on the island and examples of possessions that the immigrants carried with them when they went on the arduous journey to the USA.
On the third floor you can take a look at the dormitories where the immigrants spent their first nights in America.
But there is also the museum’s library, where you can research your ancestors, and of course the Wall of Honor, the world’s largest wall with names inscribed on it, on which you can read the names of the immigrants.
