We bought our timed ticket on line a few days before arriving in NY There are long lines and airport like security all very efficient to keep the long lines of tourists moving.

My husband and I took our 9 yr old son in March 2014. The ferry boat was spacious and surprisingly clean after the previous weeks snowfall. Ticket prices were great considering it includes the boat transportation and admission to both Musuem attractions on Ellis and Liberty Islands.

We decided to depart from the jersey side because we heard Battery Park can get very crowded. I highly recommend purchasing your tickets online in advance or you may not get what you want. Especially if you want to go into the crown of the Statue of Liberty. You would have to book that several months in advance as tickets... More

Did the crown tour of the Statue of Liberty, well worth the price! An extraordinary experience! Crown tickets may cost more but you get to the head of the security line and a far better experience. Recommend going in fall, October weather is nice, during the summer is very hot inside the Statue. Need to plan in advance, book on-line.... More

Would love to do the trip again but after booking well in advance for the View from... More

While visiting the Statue of Liberty, especially going up inside of it, was awesome, the process to get there is horrible. We had a timed appointment and couldn't get in line until then. However, there is another line of people that just bought tickets that day. Both lines funnel equally into the airport screening areas and then everyone is herded... More

I got mine for $18 for the statue of liberty and Ellis island cruises.There are so many things to see in Ellis Island. It is highly educational. There are movies shown regarding the struggles and hopes of the immigrants. It is heart wrenching. Eye opener. Must do!
