The National Park Service requires that an adult climb with anyone under eighteen years of age. Children must be at least 40 inches tall. The climb is strenuous. Visitors with health issues may not wish to make the climb. We suggest that you visit restrooms and drinking fountains on the balcony before beginning your climb.
Crown Ticket holders will visit outdoor lower promenades on the way down. Those who wish to visit the Liberty Museum, must look for the Crown Re Entry signs atop Fort Wood. A park ranger will provide you with directions to the museum. Please note that at busy times of the day, some Crown ticket holders may be asked to explore the Liberty museum first. Park Rangers will make the request in order to "space" visitors on the stairways at safe intervals.

The Statue's original torch was the first part constructed in 1876. In 1984 it was replaced by a new copper torch covered in 24K gold leaf which is lighted by floodlight at night. The original torch is currently located in the lobby of the monument. Access to the torch has been closed since 1916.
