Share this Exhibition

Generations ago, immigrants arrived in this country by ship. This exhibition featured paintings, prints, drawings, boat models, toy boats, and even a hat worn by an immigration officer at Ellis Island, all items related to this topic of water transportation. This show contained artifacts from the museum's own collection and included a slide show of dozens of the small snapshot photographs in the collection that would otherwise have been difficult to showcase.
