The Statue of Liberty is one of our nation's most enduring symbols and is well represented in the collections with art, posters, stamps, memorabilia, and more. Take a closer look at our Statue of Liberty Hanukkah lamp at the National Museum of American History and find out if a Statue of Liberty is in your town.

Don't miss the nine-foot-tall LEGO Statue of Liberty on view at the National Museum of American History. The statue is made of sand green LEGO bricks and weighs 125 pounds without its steel support. While there, you can also visit the new Many Voices, One Nation exhibition, which presents the five-hundred-year journey of how many distinct peoples and cultures met, mingled, and created the culture of the United States.
