The Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Foundation

The Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Foundation was established in 1982 to raise private funds for the restoration and preservation of these two icons of the American experience, which are managed by the National Park Service. The Foundation restored the Statue of Liberty for the centennial in 1986, restored Ellis Island and reopened Ellis Island to the public. The Foundation has since digitized over 51 million arrival records, now available online for free. Both sites can be visited via ferry from New York City and New Jersey. Patrons can look up the immigration records of their family, friends, or even their favorite celebrity.

The Statue of Liberty

Given by France as a gift to the American people, the Statue of Liberty was meant to commemorate the Declaration of Independence. Inscribed with a poem by Emma Lazarus—"Give me your tired, your poor, / Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free," it proclaims—the statue became a shining beacon to the immigrants who first sighted it upon their arrival in New York Harbor.

Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration

The Ellis Island immigration station is a window to the past, having been restored to its 1918–1924 appearance. (It was open from 1892 to 1954, processing over 12 million immigrants.) Within the complex, the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration seeks to tell the story of generations of Americans and interpret it for visitors—many of whom are descendants of immigrants who first landed here. In addition to tours and exhibits, the American Family Immigration History Center allows visitors to search the archives to trace their family members' stories through records.

Take an early ferry see the Statue first, then Ellis Island, and if you really want a treat over all this do the Hard Hat tour The Ranger tours are a treat, they give you a human connection In the citizen exhibit, take the sample test and see if you will pass Great place to visit overall
