About the museum

It is the New Colossus and symbolizes the universal message of hope and freedom for immigrants coming to America and people seeking freedom.

The Statue of Liberty, officially known as Liberty Enlightening the World, was presented to the United States by the people of France in 1886.

The copper-clad statue, dedicated on October 28, 1886, commemorates the centennial of the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence and was given to the United States to represent the friendship established during the American Revolution.
