  • Address: Liberty Island, 10004, USA
  • Hours: Open daily 8:30am - 6pm
  • Admission: US$17
The Statue of Liberty guards the entrance to New York Harbor on Liberty Island. A gift from France to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Lady Liberty has been a symbol of democracy and hope since 1886.

Looming large at 305 feet (93 m), including the pedestal, the statue dominates Liberty Island. Together with neighboring Ellis Island, the monument is administered by the National Park Service.

Informative tours explore the construction and restoration of the monument. Inside the pedestal you can see the original torch and an explanatory exhibit before taking a close-up view of the Statue of Liberty on the 10th floor.

If you reserve well in advance, you can visit the actual crown - it's not for the fainthearted, however, as it involves climbing 354 steeply winding steps.

Practical Info

Liberty Island is south-west off the tip of Manhattan in Upper New York Bay. To visit, catch a Statue Cruises ferry from Battery Park in Lower Manhattan; the ferry continues to Ellis Island. The closest subway stations for Battery Park are South Ferry or Bowling Green.
