Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Sightseeing Program – America’s Symbol of Freedom
Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty was a gift of international friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States. It is one of the most universal symbols of political freedom and democracy. The views of the Statue from the water are breathtaking and reminiscent of what immigrants first saw entering New York Harbor.
Ellis Island opened in 1892 and was the entry point for European immigrants for more than 60 years. Twelve million people passed through the halls that are now the historical Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Walk through the Great Hall as the new Americans once did – ancestors of more than half of the US population. You can search for your family surname on the American Immigrant wall of Honor. With over 600,000 entries, it is the longest wall of names in the world.
