Statue of Liberty get Augmented Reality app

Would you like to check the Statue of Liberty, in all its splendor, right in your living room? Well, now you can thanks the new official Statue of Liberty app.

The app allows us to check all there is to know about the iconic landmark, and - best of all - to see it in augmented reality, just as if it were right in front of our eyes. It even allows us to see a view no visitor has been able to see for over 100 years: the view from the torch, closed to the public in 1916.
The Statue of Liberty is more than a monument. She is a symbol of freedom to millions around the world. This app uses Augmented Reality and immersive storytelling to bring the Statue to life anywhere. Now you can experience the iconic monument from wherever you are.

The app features multiple AR experiences that allow you to explore the iconic monument from new perspectives and at new depths. Through the app, users can access the Statue in ways that few have been able to do before. A rich curation of stories and visual media walks you through more than 150 years of the Statue’s history — from her origins in France in 1865 to the opening of the new Statue of Liberty Museum in May 2019. The app also features two immersive audio experiences: An exclusive podcast transports listeners to critical moments in the Statue of Liberty’s history; and an interactive audio tour guides visitors to 35 points of interest as they explore Liberty Island on foot.

Experience a rare view from the Statue of Liberty’s torch, wherever you are. This AR experience offers breathtaking views of Liberty Island and the expansive New York Harbor. Watch the New York City skyline as the sun rises and falls. No one has seen this view since 1916, when public access to the torch was shut down.

Study a life-size 3D model of the Statue of Liberty’s left foot using Augmented Reality. Place the model in front of you, pinch and zoom in to scale, and marvel at its size.

To complement the launch of the new museum, the Statue of Liberty app provides access to an audio tour and guided map when visiting the island. In addition, a newly released podcast, Raising the Torch, is available for all users to listen whether they’re getting ready to visit Liberty Island or exploring from thousands of miles away. This specially produced podcast includes first-person narratives and interviews with historians, who tell the fascinating and winding origin story of the iconic Statue of Liberty.

The Statue of Liberty app is free, but it weighs in at 1.1GB - so, be sure to be near a decent WiFi hotspot.
