Bringing a class to the Statue of Liberty National Monument can be a fun, memorable and educational experience. Generally, program reservations are not necessary when bringing a school or organized group to the park.
Ticketing InformationPlease reference the Plan Your Visit section for ticketing and direction options.
Museum AccessOn October 28, 2011, the Statue of Liberty celebrated its 125th Anniversary. The following day, all interior spaces of the Statue, including the museum and observation level, were closed for a year-long restoration project. Access to museum is currently restricted.
Arrive EarlyBe sure to arrive early at your departure point (either Battery Park in New York or Liberty State Park in New Jersey) in order to have sufficient time to pass through security. All visitors go through airport type security to get on the ferry.
Chaperone InformationThere must be one (1) chaperone for every ten (10) students. Chaperones need to remain with their students at all times during the visit.
Lunch OptionsStudents have the option to bring their own lunch or purchase food from the on-site provider. Indoor eating space on Liberty Island is limited. A large uncovered outdoor patio is available all year.
