The AH is a historically interesting and very informative modern museum which has already won international awards! It's a hands-on, get-the-real-feel museum but to my mind rather suitable for adults than for children. There's a lot to read, research and listen to which you can...More

Follow your own immigrant through his/her journey from Germany to the New World. Very well executed. Everything is perfect. Really impressive, especially the Harbour and grand central station( I have been to New York so it look quite realistic) loved it!!!!

This museum was very well done. As someone who has visited Ellis Island, it was great to see the other side of the story. There was lots of detail and we learned so much. Leave plenty of time to visit this museum.

Very touching to follow the protagonists of the Exhibition. This museum shows why the US was enhanced by migrants. Knowledge that seems to be lost in the course of time
