What an excellent exhibit of processing immigration in our country. It was overwhelming. We spent 6 hours there and the Ranger told us that a lot of exhibits and the building were damaged during the last hurricane.

I'm sorry. I just saw this. I bought my tickets a few days in advance during the off season, so it was pretty easy for me!
