Ellis Island Immigration Museum

After our loop around Liberty Island, we docked at Ellis Island, the gateway for millions of immigrants to the U.S. as the nation’s busiest immigrant inspection station from 1892 until 1954. By the time it closed on November 12, 1954, twelve million immigrants had been processed. Today, over 100 million Americans – one third of the population – can trace their ancestry to the immigrants who first arrived in America at Ellis Island before dispersing to points all over the country.
