Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was hoping to go up in the Crown, but was disappointed to find it sold out even months in advance. I did the Pedestal tour instead and it was a nice view of Lady Liberty from more up-close. Take time to walk through the new museum to see the Statue's original torch nearly within reach of you.

Allow plenty of time to go through a very thorough security screening before boarding the ferry. We were able to get on the next ferry that arrived without much wait. There was a longer wait for the ferry to go from Liberty Island to Ellis Island.

Don't plan on eating during your visit unless you're yearning for really mediocre food. I had a cheeseburger that was barely warm and obviously not freshly made. Other menu options may be better, but the focus is more on speed than quality. Avoid altogether if possible.

As a tourist I had no idea about the fascinating history and importance of “Lady Liberty” to the history of the US. Not just a symbol for NYC but a mark of freedom and justice for thousands of immigrants seeking the American dream and the land of freedom.

Not just a fun ferry trip and lots of photo opportunities, the island also has a museum dedicated to the history of this architectural masterpiece complete with a documentary produced by The Walt Disney Company on this importance of this national icon.

A fascinating and fun day out showcasing the intent of American independence and the symbol for freedom and justice the world over.

For each and every singly visit to NY, for not only us, we think the Statue of Liberty New York is nothing else but a MUST-SEE place. Another thing to attract us is the story behind the statue.

I was mesmerized when I went for the first time with my parents. Now a couple of decades later I still am!

What an experience! Unfortunately we were not able to get tickets to go into the Statue of Liberty, they were sold out when we tried to get them relatively last minute. We were worried that would make the trip to the island boring, it did not! The museum is so interesting, what a rich and amazing history the Statue of Liberty has! I learned so much about an iconic symbol I always knew was there but never really knew that much about! The complimentary guided tour provided was excellent! I loved that we could go at our own pace and that there was both a museum and outdoor tour available.

Also just to be able to walk around the Statue of Liberty, and see the sheer size was awe-inspiring. An incredible experience that I would highly recommend.

Everything planned to perfection. We did the pedestal at Liberty Island which was very interesting and higher up than we thought for good views. Then on to Ellis Island which is so well presented we could have spent hours but just did floor 2 audio tour to save energy..this was fantastic

You can easily see the Statue of Liberty from New Jersey's Liberty State Park if you travel by car. Manhattan and Ellis Island are also visible at the same time.

Iconic visit, really well organised ferry across. They handle crowds so much better than we seem to here in the UK. Busy location but understandably so. Glad we ticked this one off

Absolutely fantastic visit. Such an iconic view. Easy and quick ride by ferry that goes right in front for excellent camera shots. Pay the extra 30 cents to get up to the pedestal.
