Millions of immigrants entered the U.S. on this historic island between 1892 and 1954. In addition to viewing artifacts displayed in the museum, visitors seeking their heritage are welcome to consult the archives of the American Family Immigration History Center. The Peopling of America galleries tell the story of immigration to America before the processing center opened in 1892 and after it closed in 1954.
