The National Park Service will reopen the Statue of Liberty this coming Sunday after undergoing a year of renovations and improvements.

The Statue of Liberty was a gift from the people of France and was dedicated in New York City in 1886.
This Sunday will be the monument’s 126th birthday.

Of the many improvements, visitors in wheelchairs will, for the first time, be able to go inside the copper monument and ascend to one of the observation decks.

New stairs were put in place to allow visitors to climb, and an emergency elevator was installed.

About 3.5 million visitors make the trek to the Lady Liberty each year.
