Great activity
Oct 2021 • Couples
We only bought the general ticket without the pedestal and it was great. We used the free audio tour and walked around the island. We checked out the museum. It was all easily accessible and well done. You could definitely spend a lot more time at Ellis Island since it had much more information. Plan accordingly.

Very small and boring
Oct 2021 • Friends
I thought that
•Liberty Island was overcrowded with tourists
•The Statue Of Liberty was tiny
•Once you've seen the SOL there's nothing else to do there on the island.

Great autumn activity with fresh air, a nice view and a bit of exercise. I think they've really improved the gift shop.

The History is Fascinating
Oct 2021
You can take the ferry from Newark or Manhattan. Suggest Newark, for convenience. The statue is amazing, but the museum explains so much more of the history that makes it truly phenomenal. The gift shop is fun too.

Lots of history
Oct 2021
It is nice to see close up and listen to the history behind the gift from the people of France to the US. Plan ahead if you want to visit the pedestal and buy your tickets as soon as you can.

A must see

Everyone should visit Lady Liberty. Besides the history, the views are spectacular. Please buy the access to the pedestal, what is impressive are the bolts holding Lady Liberty in place.

Great tourist attraction
Oct 2021 • Couples
Tickets were cheapest from the statue city cruises website. Two tickets were $47.60 so for the price getting to go into the pedestal, the statue of liberty museum and Ellis Island was a great price. Ferry appeared clean, security was thorough. My favorite part was the statue of liberty museum on liberty Island that goes through the history of the statue.

Great Lady Liberty, bad ferry!
Oct 2021 • Solo
Booked the ferry from Liberty Park (NJ). Last trip of the day. Missed earlier booked ferry but staff at the pier was very helpful. Sailing to the island was very nice. Lady Liberty needed a little cleaning. Green copper oxide is staining the pedestal. Nevertheless the view is breathtaking, enhanced by all the nationalities present. The return was hard. The boat destinations are not clearly marked, so I arrived in NYC. Since it was the last sailing, all the crew did was point me to another ferry back to NJ. Made the last ferry out, to discover the ferry I took to NYC was moored in NJ! The boat was empty, so they could have sailed me back to NJ. They were heading back anyway!!! Very disappointing. Be careful what ferry you arrive and depart with.

Still stunning

Feel blessed to have access to this magnificent landmark. Lots of security checks, though, which is super sad.
