Celebrating America’s

symbol of liberty

The new museum will give the 4.4 million annual visitors to the Statue of Liberty the opportunity to learn about and honor the Statue’s history, influence, and legacy in the world.

The new Statue of Liberty Museum on Liberty Island in New York Harbor is projected to open to the public in 2019.

The 26,000-square-foot museum was designed by architecture firm FXFOWLE, with exhibitions by ESI Design. It will allow for expanded artifacts, content and exhibits on the history of the Statue of Liberty; her original concept, design, construction; and her 1986 centennial restoration. The museum will also explore the philosophical concept of liberty and how the Statue of Liberty serves not only as an American symbol but as an interpretive and celebrated iconic global symbol.

The exhibits will provoke insight, stir emotions, and inspire ideas about the Statue of Liberty and the ideals she represents. To begin, an immersive experience will take visitors on a virtual flythrough inside the monument with awe-inspiring perspectives and an overview of the story of Lady Liberty and how the world has changed around her. Visitors can then delve into stories about the Statue’s construction, history, and global impact through historic artifacts, immersive media, and interactives. The culmination of the museum experience has visitors consider their own roles in liberty’s future through engaging activities.
