They must pass through security screening before boarding any ferry. The Statue of Liberty is more than a monument and symbol of freedom to millions around the world. The interior of the base of the Statue, and the historic fort that is the foundation of the Statue, are scheduled for necessary upgrades to stairwells, elevators and mechanical systems.
This plaque situated in the Statue of Liberty exhibit, has come to symbolize the statue's universal message of hope and freedom for immigrants coming to America. One hundred years ago, the people of France gave the Statue to the people of the United States.on October 28, 1986, the Statue of Liberty National Monument celebrated her 100th birthday.

 The Statue was a joint effort between America and France.
