EarthCam to Release Broadcast-Quality Construction Time-Lapse of Statue of Liberty Museum

WHAT: The new Statue of Liberty Museum on Liberty Island in New York will be opening to the public on May 16. EarthCam has been documenting construction of the incredible museum, including the relocation of the Statue of Liberty’s original torch to its new home at the museum. Stay tuned, as EarthCam will be premiering a 4K broadcast-quality time-lapse movie of the entire construction process to celebrate the museum’s opening!

WHY: Using high-quality gigapixel panoramic webcam technology, EarthCam has been documenting progress since 2016 and is sharing the views via a public web page. The museum will be the most significant addition to the island since the arrival of the Statue herself in June 1885. The 26,000-square-foot building will replace the small exhibition space currently inside the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. The unique design features a glass roof that seemingly blends in with the surrounding landscape and offers incredible views of America’s Great Lady and the New York Harbor. The interior will feature the statue’s original torch, which was replaced during a major renovation in the 1980s.

HOW: Celebrate the opening of the new Statue of Liberty Museum on May 16 with EarthCam’s 4K construction time-lapse movie, coming soon! If you would like to be notified when the time-lapse is available, please submit your request to
