As the central processing location for immigrants coming to America from 1892 through 1954, the Main Building at Ellis Island welcomed more than twelve million immigrants through its doors. The histories of this group connect to the lives of nearly forty percent of the U.S. population, an amazing thing to consider. Now a museum, these stories are introduced with the World Migration Globe, a sphere with multi-media projections that present how migration patterns have occurred not only in the United States but around the world.
