Ellis Island: From 1892 to 1954, millions of immigrants began their American dream here: The Great Hall, where the immigrants were processed, the four rooms where immigrants were detained.
When today's visitors disembark at Ellis Island, they stand under the recreated historic canopy - the same point where immigrants began the process toward American citizenship.
Statue of Liberty: She is an icon, a national treasure, and one of the most recognizable figures around the globe. The new Statute of Liberty Museum represents an exciting new chapter in Lady Liberty's story of freedom.
