Number of visitors to the Statue of Liberty in the U.S. 2008-2017 This statistic shows the number of visitors to the Statue of Liberty in the United States from 2008 to 2017. The number of visitors to the Statue of Liberty amounted to approximately 4.44 million in 2017.
Statue of Liberty - additional information

The Statue of Liberty, whose full name is Liberty Enlightening the World, was a gift from France to America in 1886. Standing at 93 meters tall on Liberty Island in New York City, the figure represents Libertas, Roman goddess of freedom, and her tablet carries an inscription of the date of American Declaration of Independence. The statue received about 4.44 million visitors in 2017.

Despite its fame around the world, a relatively small number of people visit the Statue of Liberty each year. The monument did not make it onto a list of the world’s 50 most visited tourist attractions. The three most visited attractions were the Las Vegas Strip (NV), Times Square (NY) and Central Park (NY), all nearing 40 million visitors annually – more than ten times that of the Statue of Liberty. The Eiffel Tower, whose creator Gustave Eiffel also contributed to the construction of the Statue of Liberty, welcomes seven million visitors a year.

New York is home to many popular monuments and attractions which is perhaps the reason it is so popular with international tourists. In 2016, over 12 million international visitors traveled to New York, spending more than 17 billion U.S. dollars there. New York is certainly not a cheap place to stay – standard accommodation often costs upwards of 300 U.S. dollars a night and, during some months, more than 400.
