Retrace the footsteps of freedom in action as you embark on a tour of The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. See life through the eyes of an immigrant as you relive the adventure and lore of a seaside arrival at historic Ellis Island. Witness the sight of Lady Liberty's torch radiating across the sky, signaling entrance in to the land of hopes and dreams. America, Their America, Our America.
Located on a 12 acre island, the Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, designated as a National Monument in 1924 and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986.
The American Family Immigration History Center (AFIHC) at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum contains manifests of 25 million immigrants, passengers, and crew members who entered New York Harbor between 1892 and 1924. Records can be searched at Ellis Island and on-line.
As of October 29, 2011, access to the interior of the Statue of Liberty will be restricted due to long-planned improvements to the interior. Both Liberty and Ellis Island will remain open and views of the Statue of Liberty will be unobstructed. Programs and tours will continue to be offered on both islands.
