The crown of the Statue of Liberty doesn’t re-open to visitors until July 4th, but you can start buying your tickets earlier–this Saturday, June 13th.
Only 240 people per day will get admission to Lady Liberty’s crown–meaning only 30 people every hour, in groups of 10 people at a time.
Because of the limited number of tickets available and the expected interest in access to the crown, reservations will surely be necessary.
You can start reserving tickets on Saturday, June 13 at 10:00 a.m. (EST), through Statue Cruises, either by website or phone (877-523-9849).
A charge of $3 will apply per ticket for the crown visit, in addition to the ferry ticket, which is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $5 for children. Limitations to keep in mind when buying tickets: only four tickets per reservation, and only one reservation every six months per person.
The Statue’s of Liberty’s crown has been closed since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The statue’s base, pedestal and outdoor observation deck re-opened in 2004, while the torch continues to be off-limits to visitors since it closed in 1916.
