Read More Interesting Facts

Architecture

Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, a French sculptor, created the statue, while Gustave Eiffel built the metal framework inside.

It is a neoclassical sculpture with a magnificent attitude, flowing robes, and an elevated arm holding a torch that evokes traditional Greco-Roman elements.

The base of the monument displays a hendecagram, an 11-vertice star polygon that inspired the statue’s design.

With the pedestal included, its height is 305 feet, and its weight is an incredible 450,000 pounds. 

The statue is made of less than 3/32 of an inch thick copper sheets held up by an iron framework. 

Her torch represents enlightenment, and her crown has seven rays that signify the seven continents. 

  • It can be really hot in the summer months, and there are not many shaded areas, so be prepared with lots of sunscreen or umbrellas if needed. 
  • Bringing bags, backpacks or even small handbags is not allowed, so leaving them in the locker is better. It will cost you around 25 cents.
  • There are 196 steps to reach the top of the pedestal and a 162-step spiral staircase on the crown, so make sure you wear appropriate shoes. 
  • The second level is best if you want to click on beautiful pictures and get the best views.
  • There is an elevator to go down from the pedestal, but not for the crown.
  • The Statue of Liberty Museum is so big that if you are interested in the history and construction of Lady Liberty, you will need a full day to explore all the exhibits and rooms.
  • We recommend bringing your own water and food if you are a budget traveler to avoid expensive items.
  • Also, leave as early as possible to catch your ferry because there are different ports, and it can be very crowded around noon.
  • If you have kids, keep them close because it can get busy.
  • Ellis Island is easy to visit, and there is not much to see if you are on a self-guided tour, but you can explore more when you book tour

Highlights

Statue of Liberty Pedestal 

The Pedestal

One of the most significant components of the Statue of Liberty is the pedestal, which serves as the statue’s base.

SoL Crown ticket

The Crown

The crown is one of the most visited locations of the Statue of Liberty. You will climb 162 steps up a narrow spiral staircase to reach the crown platform. It’s a difficult journey up a small staircase, but the reward at the top is well worth the work. Because the platform is small and can only hold a small number of people at once, make sure to reserve your tickets well in advance.

Secrets behind the Statue of Liberty Torch

The Torch

The torch of the Statue of Liberty is one of the world’s most well-known emblems of liberty and democracy.

The museum’s torch exhibit allows visitors to get up close and investigate the torch’s unique design and manufacture.
