(www.nps.gov/stli/). The ferry ($19) leaves every 25 minutes from Battery Park and stops at Liberty Island and Ellis Island (www.nps.gov/elis/). You must (in advance) reserve a time to enter the museum at the base of the statue, and then undergo cumbersome security procedures to enter the museum in the statue's pedestal. The Immigration Museum at Ellis Island is worth a visit, and it is FREE.

Tour Tips: Ferries leave daily every 30 to 45 minutes from 9am to 3:30pm, with more frequent departures in the morning and extended hours in the summer. Try to go early on a weekday to avoid the crowds that come in the afternoon, on weekends, and on holidays. A stop at Ellis Island is included in the fare, but if you catch the last ferry, you can only visit the Statue or Ellis Island, not both.
