The Information Center is wheelchair accessible. Here you can locate a limited number of wheelchairs (on a first-come, first-served basis). They can be borrowed, free of charge, with the deposit of a driver's license, or another form of identification at the information desk. To find the accessible ramp, continue walking past the Information Center entrance steps. On the left-hand side you will find a walkway leading to the ramp to the Information Center entrance as well as the ramp to the Statue of Liberty Museum.
Statue of Liberty MuseumLocated past the Information Center on the left, The Statue of Liberty Museum is accessible by two ramps, located on either side of the building, or one flight of stairs. The museum includes a ten minute movie, three interactive galleries and restrooms all located on one level. The top of the museum has an observation deck that is accessible by stairs or an elevator so visitors can enjoy panoramic views of New York Harbor.
