Welcome to one of the world's most famous and most visited sights of all time, the Statue of Liberty. The symbol of freedom for all nations and a welcoming monument for millions around the world, "Liberty Enlightening The World" is truly a must-see attraction in New York. This self-guided audio tour offers an unforgettable historical experience, giving you an insight into what it was to be an immigrant in America 100 years ago, and what it took to start a new life. This tour has two different parts: 1. The Statue of Liberty and the Liberty Island Grounds with a museum; 2. The Ellis Island Museum of Immigration located on nearby Ellis Island. You will get to Liberty Island from Manhattan's Battery Park via ferry with breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. The same ferry will take you later to Ellis Island, and you will have comprehensive audio guidance throughout the whole journey. The Ellis Island Museum tells the story of more than 12 million immigrants that entered America between 1886 and 1924 through New York and how the Statue of Liberty was a reassuring sign that they had arrived in the "promised land". NOTE! This tour DOES NOT include ferry service and tickets! Purchase them at This tour is not affiliated with the Statue of Liberty Museum and the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration but is provided by an independent creator.
