Hop aboard a ferry to the island and enjoy a cruise through Hudson Bay, past lower Manhattan and Ellis Island. Explore the grounds with a self-guided audio tour or join up with a National Park Service guide for a closer look at the statue and grounds.
Visit the museum to learn more about the monument's history, then climb 146 steps up the narrow spiral staircase to the statue's crown. Make sure to stop by the gift shop for fun souvenirs and mementos of your visit. No visit to NYC is complete without seeing the Statue of Liberty. It hosts more than four million visitors each year. The statue entices visitors as a shining beacon of freedom offering a unique message of friendship to people across the world.
