• The Ellis Island Experience

    If you’re looking to give your employees a unique and authentic New York City experience, The Ellis Island Experience has you covered. Ellis Island is just an eight-minute ferry ride from Battery Park, NYC and Liberty State Park, NJ. No matter what part of the country your group is coming from, they can experience a once in a lifetime event celebrating their heritage at Ellis Island.

    An amazing 100 million Americans have ancestors who passed through Ellis Island from other countries, but many of us never get the chance to visit and get the full experience. Your guests will have exclusive use of the museum in addition to National Park Service Ranger tours. They can even try to find their family’s name on the Wall of Honor.

    Everyone will be sure to remember this experience which features breathtaking views of the Manhattan Skyline or outdoors overlooking the Statue of Liberty. You can utilize Liberty Island for a cocktail hour and then have dinner on Ellis Island if you so choose. The Ellis Island Experience is great for awards ceremonies or any other corporate events.

    Our partner vendor Bounce Music and Entertainment can transform your event and take you back to Ellis Island as it was 100 years ago in 1918. Add-ons include authentic immigrant actors representing several countries, immigrant musicians who can perform a variety of musical styles, and dancers who can liven up the party. Our immigrant actors are fully interactive and can help your guests learn more about Ellis Island and the way things were.
