About Ticketing

While you don’t need a ticket to enter the Statue of Liberty Museum or Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration, tickets are required to board ferries to Liberty and Ellis Islands.

All ferry ticketing is run through Statue Cruises, which is the only vendor authorized to provide tickets and transportation to Liberty and Ellis Islands. No other ferry company can give you access to the Islands.

To purchase ferry tickets, please go to or call 1-877-LADY-TIX.

Ferry tickets may also be purchased at the Statue Cruises ticket booths, which are located in Castle Clinton in Battery Park (NYC) or at the ferry departure point in Liberty State Park in New Jersey.

Ferry schedules change seasonally and during periods of high tourism. Up-to-date schedules are posted on the Statue Cruises website. To guarantee entry, purchasing tickets in advance is recommended.

For updates on island openings, please visit the National Park Service website.

Statue Cruises is the ONLY vendor that can provide access to both Liberty and Ellis Islands through an exclusive contract with the National Park Service. We strongly recommend that you purchase ferry tickets online or from the official Statue Cruises ticket box offices.
