Guests will need to pass through airport-style security to enter the Statue of Liberty. Certain items are not permitted inside the Statue and such items will be confiscated and will not be returned. These items include all weapons; scissors, sharp items and tools; face masks or any items designed to conceal the identity of the wearer. Large packages, suitcases and backpacks will also not be allowed on the ferry to Liberty Island.

If you are carrying a backpack or large bag at this point, you are required to put your bag/s into a locker which costs $2.00 in bills only (no coins accepted). Please be sure to have dollar bills for the lockers. Other items not allowed inside at this point include food & drink, strollers, tripods, pocket-knives, laptops and tablet keyboards.

Are visits to the statue of liberty ever canceled due to weather?

Our Statue of Liberty tours run rain or shine but the one exception is if the coastguard stops water traffic in New York Harbor due to inclement weather.

I have mobility issues/use a wheelchair, can I take The Statue tour?

Yes! The Statue Pedestal has elevator access so we are happy to accommodate wheelchair users or those with limited mobility on this tour. The only part you will not be able to visit is a small platform at the very top of the Statue Pedestal.

Does the Statue tour include access to the Statue Crown?

No. Unfortunately, tickets for the Statue of Liberty Crown are extremely limited, at only 365 per day, and sell out months in advance. Walks does not provide any tours that include the Statue of Liberty Crown.
