We had to go inside the statue as my stepson is a big fan of Ghostbusters. Unfortunately, the crown tickets were sold out for months (book well ahead!) but we did get pedestal tickets and enjoyed the little museum there. Actually going up in the...More

Synonymous with New York, we viewed the statue from the deck of a harbour cruiser and didn't feel the need to stand in the queue for ages. If you want good views for free, take the Staten Island ferry, it passes really close to the...More

We went on a liberty cruise which went right up to the statue. We didn't get off the boat. Not a nice day - overcast, windy, cold and dull and grey but we still got a brilliant view of the statue and some great photos.

Our visit was on 29th November and we booked our tickets on 1st September for the pedestal and crown tickets. The security is a bit of a nuisance but it’s for our safety and a sign of the times. The visit was well worth it....More

Very good value for money. Make sure you book crown tickets well in advance as well worth it. Interesting audio tour.

Worth every minute. We did the audio tour around the island. It was phenomenal. It’s windy so dress warmly in the winter months. We learned so much about Lady Liberty and also how the average Joe helped pay for her pedastal. Great story and gift...More

Was a nice place to go, resturant needs more seating inside for cold days, food was very expensive $14 for a burger and chips

This is probably one of the most iconic monuments in the world and something I have always admired. We booked Crown tickets (some 4 months in advance) and were blown away with the whole experience. The climb is not for people with a low level...More

Rather a let down by the boat operator, promising this, that and the other but what we got was a close up view of the Statue Of Liberty from around 150 yards away.

Hello. I took the (1) South train from 59 Street Columbus Circle to Battery Park. I arrived before 6AM, naively worried I wouldn't get there in time. Clinton Castle, the ticket office and security, opened at 7:45AM and I got... More

I would say that it depends on your preference. I didn’t use the NY Pass at all because I preferred to book the tourist attractions I didn’t want to miss and to save time.
