There is no admission fee to enter the Statue of Liberty. Still, timed entry Statue Cruise tickets are required to board a ferry that stops at Liberty Island and Ellis Island.
The general admission ferry ticket price is $24 for adults (ages 13-61), $18 for seniors, and $12 for children under 13. Children under four may board a ferry for free and do not need a ticket.
The Statue of Liberty Museum and the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration offer free admission for everyone.
While booking a Statue Cruise ticket, it is best to choose Battery Park of New York as the departure location. This is an easy access option due to the convenient public transportation.
All Statue Cruises tickets include round-trip ferry service with stops at Liberty Island and Ellis Island. Choose a ticket no later than 1:00 PM if you wish to have enough time on Liberty Island and Ellis Island.
Mind that your ticket will only be valid for the specific time and date printed on the ticket. When choosing your reservation date and time, this is your entry into the Security Facility, not a specific ferry departure. Ferries depart approximately every 25 - 30 minutes from the New York departure point.
The Statue of Liberty is open daily from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM and closed on November 24 and December 25.
