Save Ellis Island Hard Hat Tours

June 4 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm


Closed for over 60 years, the historic Ellis Island Hospital Complex is now open for guided tours. The 90-minute tour takes you through select buildings and grounds of the hospital.  The hospital buildings were islands of sorrow and redemption. A sense of both is evoked in the remarkable images pasted in the rooms and hallways, part of the current exhibit by French artist JR, titled Unframed—Ellis Island. The images draw visitors into a world that no longer exists. Rooms filled with quiet anticipation, the massive steel doors of the long silent autoclave, broken windows, half-open walls capture the stories of the Ellis Island Hospital, and the 1.2 million immigrants treated there. Tours take place 7 days a week, 6 times a day – starting at 11:30am.  Tickets can be purchased at the Statue Cruises website or on Ellis Island the day of your visit.  For more information, please visit
