Join us on this long-anticipated motor coach tour to the Angel Island Immigration Station. Between 1910 and 1940, 500,000 mostly Chinese immigrants crossed the Pacific Ocean for a chance at a new life in America. Walk in their footsteps with our State Park docent through the Detention Barracks; experience the living conditions under which they were held for weeks to years. Visit the former hospital building on a self-guided tour. After undergoing a $14 million restoration and renovation that took seven years, the building was transformed into the Angel Island Immigration Museum, open to the public only since January 2022. In the Mess Hall adjacent to the Barracks, view a new permanent exhibit, “Taken From Their Families.” It tells the story of the internment of 600 Japanese immigrants from Hawaii and 100 from the West Coast who were held on the island in 1942 by the Department of Justice and the U.S. Army. There is ample time to explore outdoor features. Bring your own brown bag lunch to eat indoors, or take it outdoors and dine while gazing at breathtaking views. Deluxe coach, the Tiburon Ferry, Island Shuttle… leave the details and traffic to us, and enjoy a fabulous worry-free day on the Bay!
