NEW YORK - Visitors to the Statue of Liberty will once again be able to go inside the monument, starting next month.
David Luchsinger, superintendent of the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island, made the announcement Tuesday.
He said the interior of the statue would be open to the public again starting October 28. That's the Statue of Liberty's 126th birthday.
The interior had been closed off to visitors since October 2011 as part of a renovation project.
