Lovely historic place!!! Ferry ride was awesome!! We went in early morning hours... Ferry ride was very pleasant in the morning hours... If you are planning to visit, plan early... you cannot roam during noon in summer... you may need sunscreen etc during the day time.. there is big gift shop, even in ferry... Lovely snacks in ferry.. overall we enjoyed the trip.. don’t forget to collect the audio guide!! It was crowded all the time!! Be ready to stand in queue for a minimum 30 minutes, while going to the island and while coming back..

The Statue of Liberty is more than a monument. She is a beloved friend, a living symbol of freedom to millions around the world. These exhibits are a tribute to the people who created her, to those who built and paid for her, to the ideals she represents, and to the hopes she inspires. The Statue of Liberty exhibit, which opened in July 1986 and is located on the second floor in the pedestal of the Statue, traces the history and symbolism of the Statue of Liberty through museum objects, photographs, prints, videos and oral histories. In addition to historical artifacts and descriptive text, full scale replicas of the Statue's face and foot are also on display.       PLAN YOUR VISIT TODAY! The main historical sections include: From Idea to Image, Fabricating the Statue, Stretching Technology, Fundraising in France, The Pedestal, Fundraising in America, and Complete at Last. The next area focuses on the symbolism of Liberty with sections titled Mother of Exiles, Becoming the Statue of America, Century of Souvenirs, The Image Exploited and The Statue in Popular Culture. The Torch Exhibit     The Torch Exhibit includes the original 1886 torch and much altered flame in the lobby. On the second floor balcony overlooking this torch is a display on the history of the torch and flame, explaining the various alterations through diagrams, photographs, drawings and cartoons.  "The New Colossus" The famous sonnet written by Emma Lazarus in 1883. A bronze plaque, dedicated in memory of Emma Lazarus' contribution to the completion of the Statue's pedestal, has been affixed to the inner walls of the pedestal since the early 1900's. This plaque, currently located in the Statue of Liberty exhibit, has come to symbolize the statue's universal message of hope and freedom for immigrants coming to America and people seeking freedom around the world.

Beautiful place and Historical. Is under some repairs but you still enjoy your visit. Gift shop have a lot of gift for your memories. The only reason I gave this 3 star rate is because we spend 3 hours almost on the line to get the ferry to the island. And is no any advice that tell you what to do when you get there. For example: that you had to do the line to get the line in the castle to change your city pass ticket into the Statue of Liberty Tickets.

So fantastic to see the Statue of Liberty! Did not get off on the island, but seeing it from the water taxi was so worth it! From what I understand, you need to make reservations about 6 months in advance if you want to visit Liberty Island or to go up in the statue. We did not have time to plan for that but maybe next time. What an amazing monument to see!

Nice place. Ferry boat will take to you this place. You will get amazing views of statue of liberty 🗽 from ferry boat. After reaching to the liberty island you will get one radio like device on which you can hear history of liberty. I was very disappointed by this device because they didn't provide headphones with it. Voice was not audible at all. Apart from that you will good food here. Really nice place crowded all time.
