Statue of Liberty National Monument, New York City

4.4
A gift of friendship from the people of France, Statue of Liberty National Monument long represented the first glimpse of the United States for thousands of immigrants arriving across the Atlantic Ocean from distant lands. The 93 m (305 ft) statue's large pedestal includes an interior exhibit explaining the significance of this icon of liberty and democracy. Designed by sculptor F.A. Bartholdi and dedicated in 1886, the statue represents the Roman goddess of freedom holding a torch and a tablet of laws. It's essential to book tickets in advance. "Pedestal" tickets give you access the inside of the pedestal, the museum, and the Fort Wood level. Reservations to visit the crown can fill up to six months in advance. Ferries depart from Battery Park, New York or Liberty State Park, New Jersey. Check the ferry schedules and leave plenty of time for the security screenings.

  • Here they can be made in two ways, one taking the free ferry that only passes near the statue and another ferry that takes them to the same.

  • Worth booking ahead to see the Statue of Liberty and dressing very warm on a winters day ! Book ahead so if you want to, you can climb up to the Crown, only a few hundred people can go up each day but...  more »
  • Didn't go onto the island but saw it from the Staten island Ferry. One of those movie moments where you try to imagine being an immigrant coming to the promised land of freedom and hope. Serves as an ...  more »

  • Definitely a must visit location for all who love and appreciate this country. Buy your tickets online and dish out a few bucks more for special access to the crown. It will give you amazing views and a patriot adrenaline rush. The museum below is fantastic but use the free tour head sets as you will learn a lot. Thank you to the friendly park rangers who heightened the experience with their funny and informative stories.
  • This is an iconic "must see" in NY. The views are great! The ferry route gives an opportunity for great photos. Reservations are recommended. If you want to go to crown reservations must be made months ahead. The audio tour gives a lot of info. I think the museum needs a little updating. It could use interactive exhibits for children. I don't recommend for children 5 and under.
  • It is the statue of liberty, it was awesome 😁 I would recommend getting there as early as you can. There is a lot of security to get through. The line for the ferry ride over was extremely long when we arrived back at the park. It wasn't that bad in the morning. We were limited on our time, so we just walked around the island. Didn't stop at Ellis island. There are lots of great photo opportunities there. You can see the city, and of course the statue.
  • "It's like dream to see it a live". "The beauty of that place is incredible". It is a part of the seven wonder of the world. "It is a example of great engineering". I have no word to describe the beauty of this place. I have not seen it yet from my eye but it my dream to see it before my death. It is made in between the water......what a great job done by the architectures of this statue of liberty.
  • The Statue of Liberty is definitely something to see!! The view of it is absolutely spectacular.I have visited this place twice and I enjoyed both the times. The view of the new York City from here is amazing. I actually visited this place in summer and the weather was amazing, warm with partly cloudy. I would recommend once in a lifetime visit of this place.
