Completely worth it to climb up into the crown. Stairs are tiny, and if you are unfit or claustrophobic do not attempt it. The kids and I loved it, and the folks up top let you... read more

Sorry folks but not my cuppa tea. Overrated tourist attraction you get hassled by a 100 people on your way there trying to sell tickets for the boats etc, gets tiring and annoying.

This is a very emotional journey that is very patriotic. At times to much... Great reminder about the history of this country and how welcomed and valued were all immigrants, the need to treat them with respect and to nourish them made this country possible.

Was a breezy and cold day when we visited but worth it to see the statue up close. You can walk up to top of it but we didn't do this. We bought a 5 attractions in 3 days pass which worked well for us. The shop here is lovely with some really nice things related to statue of liberty... More

It's amazing to see something so often in movies and on the news and another thing to visit it in person. Seeing the Statue of Liberty in person was a very memorable experience. I would highly recommend this for everyone visiting New York City.

Boring place but a must see if you are in New York. In reality you can just aswell watch a photo of the statue and look up how tall it is (not that tall) and spare yourself the visit.

If in NYC, you must take this tour! If you have the opportunity to plan in advance (tickets sell out fast), definitely take a tour to the top of her crown. Unbelievable to the the inside structure.

This place is flooded with tourists and really nickels and dimes you every step of the way. Prepare to wait for hours and cough up a lung if you want to walk up halfway this dark statue. Here is a real buzzkill: You can't even walk out on the torch like the old days!! Talk about tourists ruining all the... More

The view of Lady Liberty is an awe inspiring must see. Renown as a world wonder, she is the symbol of our American freedom!

Visited after 6 p.m. Ice skating rink was out and well used. Plenty of small shops for Christmas. Great atmosphere and experience!
