the statute of liberty is intersting to visit, sure, but if you're going to go all the way to liberty island, go to up to the crown as well! It's a bit of stair climbing (okay, a lot of stair climbing), but it's managable and the views are great. Not necessarily because you can see much further than from the... More

Remember to buy your tickets on line before you leave. Hopefully you will read my review 3 months before your trip. That's the usual time to purchase tickets to the crown. You still have to queue up in line, but otherwise you will have to settle for the pedestal level. The museum in the Statue of Liberty is very interesting.... More

I only found a month before leaving that I would be going, so the Crown tickets were not available. However, visiting the Pedestal level was worth it. Great views, access to the museum. The two security checks, while understandable to an extent, became arduous. Good views from the ferry too.

Until you get up close, you cannot appreciate the beauty of this statue. It was everything I thought it would be and more. Ferries were easy to get on and regular so queuing times were low. The cost was not that pricey either but would suggest buying tickets for any tours around the crown in advance. She is really is... More

It was a very cold day when we visited so I think I appreciated the warmt of the Ellis Island museum more than the statue. It was great to look back at the Manhattan skyline as we had stood on Broklyn Bridge the night before to see the sun go down. Ellis Island museum is wonderful at reminding you how... More

The whole package of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is an essential part of the New York experience.

Beautiful, must see in person. I booked well in advance so that I could take my eight year old son up to the crown. I suffer from a fear of heights, but was able to make it up, look out, and make it back down with no issues. The stairwell was rather tight, but the climb was quick. My son... More

The whole experience of the statue and Ellis Island is one not to miss. The Statue trip and museum was very impressive, being possibly the most iconic statue in the world, but the Ellis Island experience was a bit disappointing. The ferries were on time and comfortable, the views of Manhattan from the river were amazing. I think NY is... More

No surprises here at all. It was all I imagined it would be. What a beauty this lady is. We just walked up to the pedestal for great views. If you want to go up in the crown you need to get tickets a month or so in advance.
