Follow your own immigrant through his/her journey from Germany to the New World. Very well executed. Everything is perfect. Really impressive, especially the Harbour and grand central station( I have been to New York so it look quite realistic) loved it!!!!

This museum was very well done. As someone who has visited Ellis Island, it was great to see the other side of the story. There was lots of detail and we learned so much. Leave plenty of time to visit this museum.
