Visiting the crown of the Statue of Liberty is one of the most rewarding experiences of any trip to New York City. Starting in 2009, the National Park Service implemented a new system that requires advanced reservations for access to the crown. This reservation system is much different than how the public accessed the crown prior to 2001. The procedure for reserving crown tickets and accessing the crown is detailed below.
RESERVE YOUR CROWN TICKETS
Due to its extreme popularity, access to the crown is by advanced reservation only. Statue Cruises is the official source for crown reservations as well as the company that provides ferry transportation to the island. All reservations
must be made online or by telephone.
Crown reservations are not available on Liberty Island.
