Statue of Liberty

How far would you travel to find a better life - a life of freedom and prosperity? Lady Liberty located on Ellis Island has been welcoming people to New York City for hundreds of years. The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World stood as a symbol of hope and freedom to over 12 million people who immigrated to the United States in search of a better life. The 305 foot copper covered steel statue was a gift to America from the French for the 100th anniversary of signing the Declaration of Independence.

The museum collection of the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island includes approximately 390,000 individual artifacts and over 1 million archival records, which represent the cultural and natural histories of both Liberty and Ellis Islands. These materials educate and inspire Americans and visitors about the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island through exhibits, research, interpretive programs, publications and the media.

Significant items in the museum collection include 1886 models of the Statue of Liberty sold to raise funds for the Statue's construction; a number of letters exchanged between Auguste Bartholdi (designer of the Statue of Liberty) and Joseph Pulitzer (publisher of the New York World newspaper); immigration documents such as inspection cards, passports and steamship tickets; and personal items families brought with them through Ellis Island.

The Statue of Liberty is not only a symbol of New York City, but a symbol for the United States representing numerous political and social ideals. With the shackles around her feet many associate her with the abolition of slavery. For returning soldiers, it became a symbol of home as they entered New York after their time of war overseas and often used as a symbol of patriotism and liberty for all. For others, the statue was a symbol of immigration serving as a sign that they had arrived in the land of their dreams.

Visit the United States’ most iconic statue and decide for yourself what it symbolizes for you.
