Museum of Immigration in the USА once again open to the public

Immigration Museum on Ellis Island opened in the Monday, October 28, a year after it was flooded in the aftermath of the devastating Hurricane Sandy.

Now more work is continuing on the building where 12 million immigrants took their first steps in America. But two key areas – the first Luggage room on the first floor and the “Great Hall “, which at the moment can only be reached by stairs – will have to receive visitors.

Most of the exhibits were removed from museums and will not be returned until you have completely rebuilt climate control. “But the building where history was made,” – says John Harlan Warren, a spokesman for the National Monument Statue of Liberty. – “You have to feel the excitement of what was there.”

Free audio tours and programs under the direction of curator and resume.
