Ellis Island was a welcome center for the more than 12 million immigrants who arrived in New York between 1892 and 1954. Now a museum, this national park helps visitors find a bit of their heritage. Exhibits display photographs depicting life for the immigrants as they entered the United States, including the bunks where they slept and the personal items taken from their homelands. But the living-history performances seem to engage kids the most. "Ellis Island Stories" recreates an immigration officer's interrogation, and "Voices from the Past" mixes song and narrative, detailing the experience of Irving Berlin, a Titanic survivor. –Candyce Stapen
