Historical tours of the Ellis Island Museum are offered to groups, organizations and individuals, including New York harbor, Castle Garden, Ellis Island, and museum orientation. Also find up-to-date information on genealogical resources, exhibits and related activities.
Your host and guide will be Tom Bernardin, whose association with Ellis Island began in 1978 as a National Park Service ranger, giving tours of pre-restoration Ellis Island. His slide-lecture presentation, Ellis Island-The Golden Door led to the publication of his book, The Ellis Island Immigrant Cookbook.

His goal is to provide visitors to Ellis Island and New York with a memorable, interesting, fun, comfortable and informative time as we look back to our enlightening past.
