I went there today after enquiring about the timetable on the internet site. Nowhere was it written that it was closed today (Saturday January 5). Once at the entrance an employee told me and a few other unlucky visitors that the museum was closed in...More

As a Museum director, I always visit museums. This museum was tops on my list since it tells a story much like our own on the Lower East Side of New York City. The staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable. The presentations were excellent.

This Museum is quite simple but the building is impressive. It was the entry door of millions of immigrants since late nineteenth century to mid-twentieth century. Objects and videos allow you to know about the immigration process. There is also an art gallery.

This museum is extremely well done and is small enough for a complete and thorough visit in about an hour or two. Attached is also an interesting contemporary art exhibit which I believe is temporary. It's an excellent museum for anyone interested in immigration history....More

This Museum is nicely presented in the building that saw so many immigrants land in Argentina. Although it covers the whole idea of immigration it concentrates on Italian/Spanish immigrants from late 19th early 20th century. Lots of documents and iconography from this period complemented by...More

We made an effort to get over to this museum, and we were really glad that we did. It's more of a big exhibit rather than a museum, but what's there is interesting and beautifully displayed. We especially loved watching the video collection of individual...More
