Visiting Statue of Liberty Tours
The Statue of Liberty National Park is open every day and admission is free, you must however take a ferry to get to the island. Ferries to Liberty Island depart regularly from Battery Park, at the tip of Manhattan, and from Liberty Park in New Jersey. One ferry fare includes both a visit to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
The Statue of Liberty itself has been closed to visitors since September 11, 2001 but the island and viewing platform are still open to the public. The platform houses a museum with displays about the history of the Statue and a glass viewing window where you can see the interior of the Statue. At this museum you will see the original torch and arm of the Statue of Liberty, replaced during the 1984-1986 restoration.
The twelve-acre Liberty Island has lots of room for kids to play and for a picnic lunch. It's a sight every visitor to New York City should make sure to see.
The Statue of Liberty is located on Liberty Island in New York harbor. Liberty Island is open daily for Statue of Liberty tours (except on Christmas) and run from 9:30am - 5:00pm.
