This handy little guide will give the visitor an historic background of the newly-restored Ellis Island Immigration Museum. This guide provides step-by-step instructions as to where to start on the do-it-yourself tour of the Main Arrivals Building. See a wonderful half-hour movie showing in graphic detail how 12 million immigrants from all nationalities were processed at Ellis. See the Wall of Honor with over 400,000 engraved names of immigrants and their families. See the Great Hall with its lavish arched ceiling and beautiful chandeliers. Be sure to visit a dorm room, measuring 10' by 10', which housed 36 people, and had only one toilet.
