I learned the hard way that you have to book 2 months in advance to gain access to her crown... I will definitely do it next time around. :-)

Probably the symbol of America. Take the Liberty island ferry to see the Statue up close. It's a total hassle to get tickets for the crown or pedestal, we didn't bother so I can't comment on whether it's worth it, however the view from outside is good enough and you can really appreciate the scale of it. There are free... More

Pre-booked tickets before arrival, so queuing was a little quicker. Once arriving, you are provided with an audio tour which is informative and interesting. Views across too Manhattan island are amazing.

Unhelpful, rude staff! They could all do with getting a few lessons in PR, because this is such an iconic landmark they know they are going to get the tourists and most people are only going to visit once anyway so they basically don't care how they treat you. I would recommend just taking the free ferry and seeing it... More

View of the Statue of Liberty from the Staten Island ferry which is free. This is an option when you decide to get a view of the statue, do some photos and selfies and maximize your time to visit other attractions. Among the sights to take in from either side of the vessel, are Governors Island, the Statue of Liberty,... More

We had a mixed crowd from 8 to age 50. One had a torn ligament in her knee and one was just outta shape. And yet, WE DID IT!! We took the elevator up the pedestal so we didn't wear ourselves out. Then we climbed the 188 steps to the crown, taking only one break. We just took our time.... More

We used the subway to get to Battery Park hopped off the train and there was plenty of signage pointing in the direction we needed to go. The ferry to get to Liberty/Ellis Island and back to the mainland is a bit overwhelming with people being packed on like cattle but in the end it was well worth the trip.... More

It was unfortunately cold and windy when we went but it was still great. Be sure to pick up a headset for the tour. The museum was great and many of the park rangers were full of knowledge.

Took the first boat out to liberty island. Whole process is long with lots of waiting and queuing which I expected from other reviews so glad I went early. We had crown access which we booked a few months in advance and on the day a sign was outside of ticket booths before they opened saying no crown tickets available... More

I had been looking forward to this visit but while I enjoyed seeing the iconic statue, I found the whole visit very disappointing. The boat going across was jam packed and this was April. I dread to think what it would be like during the summer months. The staff at the statue were totally unhelpful and surly I didn't see... More
