This is symbol of freedom for millions. Highly recommend purchasing tickets ahead of time as the line is shorter. Security screening is similar to airlines. You can purchase tickets online and obviously they have different tour levels, purchasing online will save you a lot of time and purchasing the reserve ticket will also get you in the priority boarding queue. Book to go inside. It will give you a whole new appreciation for this iconic place.

A wonderful experience for the whole family. It was so much fun to walk around the island. The museum in the base of the monument was interesting. My son did not enjoy going up over 200 flights of steps and absolutely refused to go outside the statue. The views were amazing! It was pretty neat to touch the bolts holding the statue to the base of the monument. There are neat facts as you walk up the statue. We did not enjoy having to go through 2 security check points with 3 older kids and 1 toddler with a stroller, but understand why the extra security is necessary. Please make sure you have your printed tickets out and you'll move through faster.No food or drinks, but they have 50 cent lockers to put stuff in and a stroller parking area.In the end, it was worth it to experience a monument that has meant so much to so many. Definitely recommend!

One of the most iconic place of NY. You can get tickets online or in battery park. Remember to tell them that you want ticket with “Pedestal Access” so you can go close and go into the pedestal section. No extra charge for this. There is a third option of Crown Access which is about few dollars extra but that’s not the problem. People book the crown Access tickets many monthsahead so you will need to book that one a head of time. You have security checking just like going through airport security. Then you hop on the Statue Cruise. They take you to liberty island. You can either wait in line for elevator in pedestal Access or can climb the stairs. But there are more than 100 steps so recommend taking the stairs. There is no elevator for crown Access and everyone has to take stairs if you have that ticket. They provide you an audio device which gives you audio tour and briefing in various different languages. Same ferry also takes you to Ellis Island as well.

What to say. It was amazing. Very well put together. The experience for someone handicapped was about as good as it could get. Yes, it's tight, but they know what to do! Very impressive on how they keep this monument alive and display it proudly... As they should!
