Start your visit to the Statue of Liberty National Monument by visiting the Information Center on Liberty Island. Pick up the park's brochure and ask the park ranger how to best plan your visit. Don't forget your National Parks Passport Book, the cancellation stamp is just inside the door! Children can pick up the junior ranger activity and, upon completion, will earn the junior ranger badge.
Stay for the 10-minute film to learn about a brief history of the iconic statue and island in New York's busy harbor. Also, learn about the other National Park Service sites around New York City.
The Information Center is located only a few moments from the dock. Outside the center is the refreshment building and the bookstore, and across the patio is the gift shop which also has the island's restrooms.
