Lady Liberty's Historical Essence

The Statue of Liberty, a gift from France to the United States, was designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel. Unveiled in 1886, it stands as a symbol of freedom and democracy. Initially serving as a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving by sea, Lady Liberty has grown to be an emblem of the United States and a worldwide icon of freedom.


THE PEDESTAL AND CROWN EXPERIENCE


Enhance your visit with an optional climb to the Statue’s Pedestal or Crown. These exclusive add-ons offer unique perspectives and intimate views of the statue’s interior. Please note, the Pedestal and Crown visits require advanced booking and are subject to physical ability due to the steps involved.
