Time alloted to see Statue of Liberty?

Hello-

we are hoping to see the Statue of Liberty on a Sunday morning. I understand the statue is closed, but could you help me with the amount of time needed to get to and from the island? Is there a lot to see besides the statue? Thank you, so much!

I don't have access to it from here, but the StatueCruises.com website has a page that tells you how long it takes.

And do you plan to get off the ferry at Ellis Island? That will make a difference. The only way to get there is via Statue Cruises.

The only thing on LIberty Island is the Statue. BEing on the island will enable you to get closer--but that is it! Ellis Island, the second stop on the ferry is a fascinating place, IMO to visit. It may not be as well known as the Statue, but i think it should be a must visit.

If you are not going to Ellis Island, then visiting LIberty Island is, IMO, at this juncture a waste of time and money.
