It was presented by France to celebrate the centenary of American independence and as a symbol of friendship between the two countries. The statue arrived in New York on June 17, 1886 aboard the French steamship Iceri. It was carried in a detached form – it was divided into 350 parts and packed in 214 boxes.

The seven teeth in its crown represent the seven seas or seven continents. The height from the ground to the tip of the torch – 93 meters, the height of the statue, from the top of the pedestal to the torch – 46 meters. The statue is made of thin copper carved into wooden shapes. The resulting sheets were then mounted on a steel frame.

Now only the stairs of the pedestal are open. Inside the basement is the Museum of American Immigration and the History of the Statue.
