Behind the Robe:

A first-look at the new Statue of Liberty Museum



3:00 pm


How do you create a more meaningful experience for the 4.5 million people who visit Liberty Island each year, many of whom never get into the Statue of Liberty due to space limitations?

Join the design team of the highly anticipated Statue of Liberty Museum for a behind-the-scenes look at its creation. Designed to stir emotions and inspire ideas about the Statue of Liberty and the ideals it represents, the 26,000-square-foot museum begins with a sweeping immersive film that takes visitors on a fly-through inside the monument and provides an overview of the story of Lady Liberty. The Engagement Gallery allows visitors to delve into stories about the Statue’s construction, history, and global impact through artifacts, media, and interactive experiences. In the Inspiration Gallery, guests express their views of what liberty means to them by adding a self-portrait and collage of inspirational images to an ever-growing digital mural called Becoming Liberty.
