A New Way to Experience History
In the fall of 2016, the next step in Lady Liberty’s great legacy was announced—the construction of the brand new Statue of Liberty Museum™. When this new museum opens, it will be the most monumental addition to Liberty Island since the Statue herself. More than that, it will allow millions more visitors to enjoy the Statue of Liberty experience and be inspired by her history and message of freedom and opportunity. This project is projected to be completed in 2019.
