The new Statue of Liberty Museum is conceived as an extension of the Park, and is accessible to all of its 4.5 million yearly visitors without additional security clearances. The Museum's defining gesture is the lifting of the Park itself, creating a naturalized habitat above. Below, a sparkling vitrine showcases the Statue's original torch. Monumental steps engage and activate the circular flag plaza, providing sitting, climbing and viewing spaces towards the Statue. The roof terrace affords spectacular views of the island, the harbor and the city beyond.
