How tall is the Statue of Liberty in feet?

93 meters (Statue of Liberty). Height/National Monument The Statue of Liberty is 151 feet tall on a 154 foot pedestal, bringing the total height of the sculpture to 305 feet. The statue's arms are held out straight, with her left arm extended toward France and her right arm extended toward America. On its face is an American flag flying at half-staff.

The statue was built in New York City and completed in 1884. It was designed by French artist Frederic Bartholdi and constructed under the direction of Gustave Eiffel of Paris. The copper skin was later replaced with steel.

In 1947, the United States government loaned the statue to the nation of France as a gift for the bicentennial of the American Declaration of Independence. It was originally planned that the statue would be returned to America in 1949 but this did not happen until 1967 when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a law requiring the federal government to return the statue to the United States by October 31, 1986. In 1973, the law was revised so that if Congress does not vote to revoke the statute by October 31, 1986 then the government can extend the handover date to September 30, 1987. If Congress does not act by then, the statue will be turned over to the National Park Service.
