In recent years, the Statue of Liberty has become more difficult for visitors to enter due to heightened security measures and strict visitor quotas. In response, the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation has created a museum to help facilitate a better visitor experience to Liberty Island. The free and accessible glass-walled space offers exhibitions, performances and artifacts—the most notable of which is Lady Liberty’s original torch, which was removed and replaced in 1984. The museum also provides additional seating areas and views of the Statue and NYC.
