Know before you go

Getting In: There are two departure points to choose from: Battery Park in Manhattan OR Liberty State Park in New Jersey. Present your New York Explorer Pass at the Statue Cruises ticket counters inside Castle Clinton at Battery Park or at Liberty State Park where you will receive a boarding ticket for entry.

Please Note: Access to the Pedestal and Crown of the Statue of Liberty is not included with your pass. If you wish to 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.
