After meeting your guide at Castle Clinton on the southern tip of Manhattan you’ll board the ferry to Liberty Island. Enjoy your early Reserve Line Access ticket to avoid the crowds. During the ride to Liberty Island you’ll learn about the history of the famous statue and learn about how perceptions of Lady Liberty have changed over the decades and through generations. Once on the island, your guide will show you the grounds and tell you more about what you will see inside the Pedestal and the new museum. You will have time to examine the collection housed inside the museum - from the original bones of the statue to one of the first flames of her torch. Then make the climb to the top of the pedestal and enjoy unparalleled views of the NYC skyline from her feet. After a short break you’ll hop back on the ferry and cruise over to Ellis Island to hear the stories of the millions of immigrants that passed through there between 1892 and 1954. After reaching Ellis Island your guide will point out significant monuments on the grounds including The Wall of Honor. You will get a preview of the Museum of Immigration and what to expect so you can plan to see the exhibits important to you.
