"Trace the immigrant journey" American Family Immigration History Center Tip by icunme
American Family Immigration History Center, Ellis Island: 17 reviews and 24 photos
"Through America's Gate" is an exhibit in the main building that replicates the immigrant journey through the Ellis Island station. A step-by-step view of immigrant processing is revealed through historic photographs, artifacts and personal papers. Restored to the 1918-1924 period, this 14 room exhibit area features audio recordings of immigrants' reminiscences.
This photo is typical of the emotion experienced when we first face the display of immigrant's luggage - the first sight you see upon entering the mail building where they were processed.
