October 28, 2011 marked the 125th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty. Currently, all interior spaces of the Statue of Liberty are closed while upgrades are made to the 125 year old pedestal and the 200 year old fort base from which the statue rises. But, Liberty Island remains open to visitors. The work is expected to be completed in approximately one year. When completed, the interior will have new stairways and elevators. Upgrades to water and mechanical systems will also be addressed. Since the work is being done inside, views of Lady Liberty from land and sea will be unobstructed. National Park Rangers will be on site to greet, educate and inspire thousands of people visiting Lady Liberty each day.
The Statue of Liberty National Monument was completed on October 28, 1886. From the base to the top of the torch, she is 151 feet high. The exterior structure of the Statue is made of copper and the interior support structure is made of steel. Her official name is "Liberty Enlightening the World."
The Ellis Island Immigration Museum is an important and iconic part of America's history. Over 12 million passed through the island while it was in operation. Today, more than 40% of Americans have an ancestor who entered the country through Ellis Island.
Liberty Enlightening the World
Located on a 12 acre island, the Statue of "Liberty Enlightening the World" was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, designated as a National Monument in 1924 and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986.
Ellis Island Immigration Museum is part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. It was added to the National Park System in May of 1965 and following an extensive restoration, its main building opened over a quarter century later on September 10, 1990 as a National Museum of Immigration.
If I take the ferry from one side, must I return to that side?
No. You may depart from and return to different locations. However, once you return to either Battery Park or Liberty State Park, you may not reboard the ferry. Be sure to use the appropriate boarding location at each island.
What languages are spoken in the reservation center?
The reservation center is multi-lingual. We have agents who speak Cantonese, English, Fijian, French, Hindi, Italian, Lithuanian, Punjabi, Russian, Samoan, Spanish, Urdu, Tagolog, Thai, and Vietnamese. We will be offering more languages in the future.
Is the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island?
No, there are two separate islands, Liberty Island and Ellis Island. The Statue of Liberty is on Liberty Island and the National Museum of Immigration and former federal immigration station are on Ellis Island.
Are pets allowed on the ferry or in the park?
No. Pets are prohibited from using the ferry system and being on Liberty and Ellis Islands. However, documented service/assist animals are exempt from this policy.
Can I purchase food or bring my own to the park?
There are food and beverage concessions available on all the vessels and on both islands, although you are welcome to bring your own. Large coolers will not be allowed through security screening. No food or beverages (including water) are permitted in the Statue Museum and Pedestal.
If I'm using a car to get to the ferry, is parking available?
Ferries depart from Battery Park in New York City and from Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey. There is ample car and bus parking at the ferry area in Liberty State Park in New Jersey. Although private parking garages may be available to you near Battery Park, parking is usually very limited and can be costly.
What should I wear?
Dress for the season when you visit the Statue of Liberty National Monument and the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. During the summer months temperatures can rise to the high 90's with high humidity. In the winter temperatures are chilly. Be sure to dress in layers in case conditions change suddenly. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as you will be walking a great deal during your visit.
Are there any ticket restrictions?
Each customer may reserve a maximum of 4 tickets. Only one reservation is allowed during any 6 month period. Children must be at least 4-feet tall. Names of all ticket users must be provided at the time of purchase to be printed on the tickets. When presenting the tickets to access the Statue on Liberty Island, each ticket holder will be required to show photo ID (except minors without ID) matching the name printed on the ticket.
How many people will be allowed in the crown?
For safety considerations, groups of no more than 10 people will visit the crown at a time. About 3 groups will ascend to the crown per hour.
Will the crown be open every day?
Yes, if the park is open. However, the National Park Service reserves the right to cancel reservations at any time for weather, safety, hazardous conditions or any other reason.
How strenuous is the climb?
The climb to the crown is a strenuous journey that encompasses 354 steps in a cramped enclosed area with high temperatures. The steps within the Statue are 19" (48 cm) wide, are shallow and taper at one end. Head clearance is 6 feet 2 inches. All crown visitors must be able to climb up and down the 354 steps unassisted.
Is it safe to go up to the crown?
National Park Service rangers will be on site at all times to assist visitors. Since the statue is not air conditioned, interior temperatures can be 20 degrees higher than the outside. On hot days visitors should drink water at least 30 minutes prior to the climb. There are no rest rooms inside the statue itself. The climb is strenuous and not without risk, and the National Park Service recommends that crown visitors have no significant physical or mental conditions that would impair their ability to complete it, including, but not limited to: heart and respiratory conditions, mobility impairments, claustrophobia (fear of confined spaces), acrophobia (fear of heights) or vertigo (dizziness).
When available, if you choose to depart at 2:00 pm, you will only be able to
visit either Liberty Island or Ellis Island. Unfortunately, there will not be
enough time to visit both landmarks.
