Angel Island was to USA’s west coast what Ellis Island was to the east coast. It received many waves of immigrants from across the Pacific Ocean 1910 – 1940. Later scheduled for demolition, the discovery of about 200 Chinese poems carved into the walls of detention barracks here led to an interest in preserving this important heritage. Today, the museum recounts the adventures and trials of the mainly Chinese prisoners who were interrogated at the Station.

Angel Island Immigration Station Reviews & Ratings

  • Immigrants from asia mostly china came here n restricted and suffered. Come n see history it's beautiful island.

  • You need to bike or take a shuttle from where you park to the museum so be prepared!

  • Angel Island, the Ellis Island of the West, has a fascinating history as well as very nice present. You can hike around the island, going to the top of the hill, and get amazing views of San Francisco, while imagining what it might have been like for the many (mostly Asian) immigrants who came through this way. make time for the little museum, too.
