Limited access to the Statue of Liberty’s crown and the torch that has been closed since 1916.

1 You Probably Haven't Been To These Places (16 pics)

There is a museum dedicated to the history of the statue inside the pedestal. The interesting fact is that the pedestal has a transparent ceiling through which you can see the inner steel frame of the statue. There are 2 observation decks above: the first one is in the crown, and the second one is in the torch. The latter has been closed to the public since 1916 for safety reasons. But you can climb the crown — it contains a narrow spiral staircase, consisting of 356 steps leading to it. The Vatican Apostolic Archives are accessible only for royalty and scholars.

This space is off-limits to passengers.
