Statue of Liberty Ferry Tickets
Visit the Statue of Liberty National Monument, one of the most iconic landmarks in the world, and get admission to the historic Ellis Island Immigration Museum with the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Ferry Ticket, the best way to get to both Liberty and Ellis Islands. Your Pass includes informative, self-guided audio tours of Liberty and Ellis Islands so you can explore at your own pace.
The New York Explorer Pass is the best choice for maximum savings and flexibility.
Visit the grounds of Liberty Island and get unbeatable views of Lady Liberty and downtown Manhattan. Then, head over to Ellis Island to learn all about American immigration and research your family history at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum.
Please note: access to the Pedestal and Crown of the Statue of Liberty is not included with your Pass. If you wish add access to those parts of the statue, you will need book Crown Reserve and/or Pedestal Reserve tickets separately and make reservations as soon as possible as space is limited and tours often sell out months in advance.

Schedule changes regularly, but generally operates from 8:30 am–4:00 pm with regular departures from Battery Park and Liberty State Park. Please check
for the most up-to-date schedule.
Important: Please pick up your boarding pass prior to getting on the ferry. You will also need to enter through a security checkpoint before boarding the ferry, but do not get into this security line without first retrieving your ferry ticket. Once you have your ticket, expect to pass through airport-level security and be prepared for a long wait. We suggest arriving early in the morning. Allow at least 2 hours to visit one island and 4 hours to visit both islands.
Explorer Pass provides you access only to the island. Tickets to the Statue's "Pedestal" and "Crown" require an advance reservation for a fee and space is limited. Pedestal and Crown tickets are not available with your Explorer Pass.
