General Information

The Statue of Liberty situated on Liberty Island in New York Harbour is a sculpture that was given to the United States from France as a gift, dedicated in 1886. It is a symbol of universal peace and freedom. It was named as a National Monument in 1924 and since 1933 has been looked after by the National Park Service. The statue, made out of copper, resembles Libertas the Roman Goddess. The Statue is 151ft tall but from the ground level to the top of the statue it stands at some 305ft approx. The right arm of the statue is raised with a torch in the hand and in the left hand a tabula ansata is being carried with the day of the United States independence, July 4th, 1776 inscribed in Roman numerals onto it.

Getting there

The statue is a major attraction for sightseers and is one of America’s biggest attractions. As the statue is on an island, it is accessible by ferry boat.

Opening Times and Admission

You can go up to the crown of the statue which is a great observation point of New York City. You can also visit the museum or just visit the island and not enter the site. All of these options are advised to be booked in advance to secure your entry as the site is very busy.

Always wanted to visit and finally got the chance a couple of months ago, an iconic statue. I'd advise that if your going in the winter to wrap up warm as you could feel the cold on the ferry across the water. We had pre booked our visited and therefore got to go up to the observation deck and it was well worth it. Great experience. Once in a lifetime.

Well worth a visit

Rated:

Liberty Island and statue is well worth a visit when visiting New York. We went with friends who are New Yorkers so the trip was perfect. The views from the statue itself are very good and you get a great view of the Skyline of the city.
