Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration and its collection

Once a gateway to the USA for millions of immigrants, this small island close to shore is best known for being an immigrant inspection station. The first immigrant ever to pass the inspection here is said to be a teenage girl Annie Moore in 1892 and the last immigrant was inspected here in 1954. During its active era, around 12 millions of immigrants went through the immigration inspection here. The Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration introduces its visitors to this era and the stories of the immigrants. Both the Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. The place is definitely worth visiting for its educational value. You can get there by ferry and during the ferry ride you can enjoy the view of the Statue of Liberty and of Manhattan.
