The 151-foot copper-coated statue, one of the country’s most famous landmarks, will soon be taken on a traveling tour of the country, making stops at 19 major cities across the U.S. sometime in 2015.
Here’s the official announcement:
“New York City has home to one of the world’s premiere works of art for more than 100 years. But we know that many Americans haven’t had the chance to visit Lady Liberty, and may not ever get the chance to visit our great city. So, NYC is proud to partner nineteen cities across the country to bring the Statue of Liberty on display for a limited time. This important object not only provides a foundation for understanding early America, but also a touchstone for continued efforts to strive for common human freedoms.”
Many details are still being worked out, but tickets will start at just $9 and range up to $99. The top price will give visitors VIP access to the landmark statue, including access to the secret robotic controllers that drive the statue.
Sound to good to be true? That’s because it is.
