The STATUE OF LIBERTY
is more than a monument. She is a beloved friend, a living symbol of freedom to millions around the world. These exhibits are a tribute to the people who created her, to those who built and paid for her, to the ideals she represents and to the hopes she inspires.
Opened in July 1986, the STATUE OF LIBERTY EXHIBIT is located on the second floor in the pedestal of the Statue and traces the history and symbolism of the Statue of Liberty through museum objects, photographs, prints, videos and oral histories. In addition to historical artifacts and descriptive text, full scale replicas of the Statue's face and foot are also on display. The main historical sections include: From Idea to Image, Fabricating the Statue, Stretching Technology, Fundraising in France, The Pedestal, Fundraising in America, and Complete at Last.
From 1892 to 1954, over twelve million immigrants entered the United States through the portal of ELLIS ISLAND, a small island in New York Harbor. Ellis Island is located in the upper bay, just off the New Jersey boast, within the shadow of the Statue of Liberty. Through the years, this gateway to the new world was enlarged from its original 3.3 acres to 27.5 acres, mostly by landfill obtained from ship ballast and possible excess earth from the construction of the New York City subway system.
