BRINGING THE MUSEUM TO LIFE
Making of the Museum
Constructing a building on a small island in the middle of a busy harbor is no small feat! It tooks years of planning, hundreds of skilled workers, and contributions from thousands of generous donors to make the Statue of Liberty Museum a reality.
The Founders Registry
The museum is able to preserve the promise of Lady Liberty through the support of our dedicated community and our generous Founders.
The Statue of Liberty Museum is dedicated to preserving and sharing the history and legacy of a remarkable American treasure. Unique collections and modern galleries provide an enhanced educational experience, inviting visitors to contemplate the meaning of the Statue and explore history in thought-provoking ways.
A stirring and engaging destination, the Museum acts as an extension of the park and of the monument itself. By sharing Lady Liberty’s story, we provide a powerful lesson in the fragility of freedom, and help visitors gain a new appreciation for one of the world’s most inspiring icons.
Honoring her legacy
