Statue of Liberty New Museum Construction

Statue Of Liberty National Monument » Statue of Liberty New Museum Construction » Document List

The National Park Service, in cooperation with the Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Foundation, is preparing an environmental assessment (EA) to evaluate the impacts from the construction of a new 20,000 square foot Statue of Liberty Museum on Liberty Island. The purpose of the museum construction project is to move the existing Statue of Liberty museum out of the Statue of Liberty's pedestal and into a new facility on the island.

The proposed museum would be located in the northwest portion of the island adjacent to the Administration Building. A proposed temporary construction pier would be constructed on the northern side of the island to facilitate the movement of construction materials to and from the island. Upon completing construction of the museum, the pier would be dismantled and removed.
