Ellis Island
New York

Ellis Island Immigration Museum is located at New York Harbour and is a symbol of immigration in America. Between 1892 and 1954, it was the first place where immigrants arrived after a long journey from Europe. Around 12 million people arrived at this harbour in search of better opportunities in a new world.

The building which was used to examine the immigrants was opened as an Immigration Museum in 1990. This museum displays original documents, photographs and audiovisual material which is spread out over the three floors of the museum. A ferry links Ellis Island with Liberty Island which is home to the famous Statue of Liberty.
