    Take time to take in this well put together museum. Shocking but emotional. Crowds shuffle through horrifying displays in respectful silence. Excellent information throughout. Very well put together avoiding being sensationalist. Go early, it gets busy. Take time afterwards to reflect on the horror that this event created.

    There is so much to see. You should plan multiple visits if your schedule allows. We barely made it out of Egypt, and we've been there before. The exhibits are very informative - take the time to read all of the descriptions. We stopped walking after 2 hours; we were getting a little tired. Trust me, 2 hours is not enough time to explore this museum.

    Such a massive, beautiful park! I would definitely recommend spending a day here. The Ramble, Shakespeare park and Angel of the Waters in particular are must-sees!

    Staff were very welcoming and friendly.
    We had done the Empire State in the day and wanted to get an alternative view of the Empire State at Night , Top of the Rock gave us that !

    Quick and efficient through security at Battery park and boarding the boat to take you out to Liberty Island.

    Required to leave the rucksack in a locker when going up the Statue, however not all the lockers were working so had some trouble finding one that we could use. This would be so easy to resolve and if you require people to not take rucksacks inside then provide the service.

    The statue was really good and impressive. The museum was very interesting and well presented within the pedestal. Great views looking over to Manhattan.

    Getting between Liberty Island and Ellis Island was easy.

    The displays at Ellis Island were very interesting but route round them was not clear.

    A really good day out, a must do.

    One sad thing, nothing to do with the Statue of Liberty, was on arriving back at Battery Park, we noticed the memorial to the men and women of the merchant navy who lost their lives during WW2 had been turned into a hawkers bazaar. How sad and quite surprising.

    NYC Manhattan skyline is wonderful. Highly recommend you view it from the water if possible. Tak a cruise or a trip to Lady Liberty.

    We read about it in the travel books but it's even better than they say. We went north to south and the architecture along the way was stunning, the views of the city were great, not crowded....we took our time and walked it in an hour. Let's off near Chelsea Market that has 30-40 shops and restaurants.

    Sadly we went on a day with poor weather, we were offered a different day however we were flying home soon. But the lift experience and what we could see was great.

    This building is beautiful. Worth visiting just for the architecture but take a subway or train from here. We went to the Bronx from here

    What an interesting, quiet place among trees, shrubs and flowers. The walk from the subway up the stairs was invigorating and well worth it. The exhibitions of European medieval art is outstanding, and the gardens with their many plants and herbs an inspiration.

    This park was adorable during December with the Xmas market lit up. Cute little shops everywhere and a small ice rink as well. Loads of fun to wander around and look at everything.
