On arrival to Ellis Island, pick up your multilingual audio guide at the Immigration Museum. Then, explore what was America’s busiest immigration station for over 62 years.

With access to the American Family Immigration History Center's records, you can search all ship manifests that came through Ellis Island. Use this unique experience to research your family history.

Once you're ready to discover Liberty Island, drop off your audio guide and return to the ferry.

Make sure to arrive earlier than departure time because the line can be quiet bit of a wait. If yoy want to go up top PURCHASE TICKETS FOR THAT A MONTH IN ADVANCE!. Bring snacks and water!!!! The cafe on the island is not bad but the lines are extremely long, overall its a beautiful experience and a 1 time must for all :)

An experience I’ll never forget! Always wanted to visit liberty Island and it did not disappoint! If I had to complain about one thing it will be the amount of stairs you have to go up in the pedestal. You must be in decent shape or you won’t make it!

This worked exactly as described: ferry to Statue of Liberty, explore the island on your own or with the audio tour, hop back on a ferry when you're ready, and then take the second ferry to Ellis Island. We spent much more time at Ellis Island due to the extensive exhibits. When you're ready to leave, line up for the ferry back to your departure point. Very smooth and easy.
