"It will take a while" Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Tip by davesut
Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island, New York City: 412 reviews and 681 photos
Ellis island is a great museum with a lot of info and a real feel of being a part of a wave of immigration into the US. The building is a great with many rooms to explore, you can lose people in there easily! Especially if you have someone in the family called David Sutton!
Audio tour was not worth it here as I missed some bits out and could not find the right code number again :(
The Liberty Dance show for a few dollars was good, about 50 people per show watch a 1/2 hour 3 actor play about arriving in NY. It also meant a break when we were starting to get museumed out. (if that there is such a condition)
I did feel that I was missing out on a party being a tourist rather than a US citizen. It appears almost a right of passage for many people to check out this part of their heritage.
