Museum Planet presents a comprehensive narrated digital tour of Ellis Island just off the the historic foot of Manhattan.

Ellis Island was the historic gateway for eight million immigrants to America. Perhaps you ancestors came through it? Take this simple tour and you will have been there. You will see the Registry Hall, The Examination Rooms, the Holding Room, The Hearing Room and the Graffiti Columns and more. The tour won't take long and like your ancestors you soon leave Ellis Island for the mainland.

You can stop and start the tour; jump around in it; stop it to read the often extensive text and enlarge all the photos with a ‘swoosh’ of your fingers.

The tour is better than a large and well-researched book. Museum Planet takes you there: 16 photographs, 3.5 minutes of audio and 1,112 words, plus biographies.
