The Future of Ellis

An American Passage

Years after being decommissioned as the nation’s first Federal Immigration Station, Ellis Island continues to embody the yearning complexities of the American Promise. A place consecrated by millions of dreams, Ellis is a singular representation of our cultural identity.

In 2024, the Foundation announced its Ellis Island Museum Reimagined campaign. The latest initiative in the Foundation’s illustrious history, this multi-year project will transform the visitor experience and continue our efforts to care for this important monument.
