Ellis Island Immigration Museum

Located at the mouth of the Hudson River in New York Harbor, Ellis Island was the gateway through which more than 12 million immigrants passed between 1892 and 1954 in their search for freedom of speech and religion, and for economic opportunity in the United States.   Today, Ellis Island houses a museum, reachable by ferry from Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey and from the southern tip of Manhattan in New York City.  Ferry departs daily from Battery Park.
