  • The Statue of Liberty celebrates her birthday on October 28th in honor of the day she was officially accepted by the president of the United States in 1886.
  • Visitors must climb 354 stairs to reach the Statue of Liberty’s crown (or take an elevator to a lower lookout point).
  • There are 25 windows in Lady Liberty’s crown.
  • The seven spikes on the Statue of Liberty’s crown represent either the seven oceans or the seven continents.
  • The statue is made of copper and is now green in color because of oxidation (a chemical reaction between metal and water) from evaporation of the seawater surrounding it.
  • The Statue of Liberty weighs 450,000 pounds (204, 100 kilograms).
  • The Statue of Liberty has size 879 sandals that are each 25 feet (7.6m) long.
  • Although you cannot see Lady Libertyโ€™s feet clearly she is, in fact, standing among a broken shackle and chains, with her right foot raised, depicting her moving forward away from oppression and slavery.
