Statue of Liberty with Pedestal Access

Since 1886, the Statue of Liberty has welcomed millions to New York City and the United States. You will be able to get up close and personal to this international symbol and learn the history behind the statue and how it came to be on Liberty Island.

The tour includes priority, reserved access to the islands, guaranteed entrance to the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, a professional, licensed NYC tour guide who will guide you through both islands, and access to the Statue of Liberty Museum and the National Museum of Immigration on Ellis Island.

You will have the opportunity to ascend to the 6th-floor pedestal observation deck on Liberty Island for expansive views of New York Harbor and the iconic Manhattan skyline. On Ellis Island you will learn about the journey of the millions of immigrants who passed through the island from 1892-1924, arriving in America, in search of a better life.

Due to site regulations your guide might not be able to accompany you inside the Museums and the Pedestal. However, she/he will offer a complete explanation of what you will experience inside.
