Ellis Island Immigration Museum
Ellis Island, New York
As the major component in the National Park Service's restoration of Ellis Island, The Main Registry Building was converted into a museum that presents the history of the island and the human epic of immigration to America. The story is presented through a varied series of exhibits that cover more than 80,000 square-feet. Exhibition design followed extensive original research and the assembly of an unprecedented collection of artifacts.
