When you plan a visit to the Statue of Liberty there are several things that you should know and have planned out in advance. Before seeing the Statue it would be a good idea to do some research so you have an idea of its value and what you will be seeing. Some of the main things to know about the statue is that it was shipped to New York from France in pieces, three hundred and fifty pieces to be exact. When all pieces had been delivered it took almost four months for that statue to be erected. Visitors were not permitted to visit Lady Liberty on September 11th, 2001. Liberty Island was in fact closed to all visitors until December 10 of that year.

When visiting the Statue of Liberty with children you should know that strollers are not permitted on the Promenade or in the Observatory. There is plenty of room to run around and look at all the great sights. For children between the ages of seven to twelve there is a Junior Ranger program available. As a junior ranger your child will learn about the Statue of Liberty. The program takes about an hour. There are both indoor and outdoor activities within the program that children can choose from. While taking the program your child will be given a booklet that can be completed. Once the booklet is completed you can have the book signed and stamped by a Park Ranger and you get a certificate showing that you completed the program. The booklet can be downloaded from the internet as well.

The key is having a good visit to the Statue of Liberty you must give yourself plenty of time. A typical day is about five to six hours and this would include a visit to both the statue and to Ellis Island. However, if you wish to visit Liberty Island only, you should allow about two to three hours. You will need to take a ferry ride to Liberty Island and there is always a line up for the ferry, particularly during peak tourist months. It is recommended that you get to the ferry approximately two hours prior to your tour to ensure that you arrive on time. Tours must be booked and it would be a waste if you didn't arrive on time and couldn't complete the tour.
