Kip slobode (engl.:Statue of Liberty, punim nazivom Liberty enlightening the World, nekad i Lady Liberty (gospođa sloboda) franc. La Liberté éclairant le monde) je kolosalni neoklasični kip u Sjedinjenim Američkim Državama kojeg je napravio francuski kipar Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi. On se nalazi na ostrvu Liberty u njujorškoj luci. Svečano je postavljen 28. oktobra 1886. godine kao poklon francuskog naroda Sjedinjenim Američkim Državama. Od 1924. godine Kip slobode je sastavni dio Nacionalnog spomenika Kip slobode, a od 1984. uvršten je na UNESCO-v spisak Svjetske kulturne baštine.

Kip predstavlja lik Libertas, rimsku boginju slobode, ogrnutu plaštem. Napravljen je od bakra sa čeličnim potporama, a sa vanjske strane prekriven bronzanim omotačem. Stoji na ogromnom temelju sa gore ispruženom desnom rukom u kojoj drži pozlaćenu baklju. U lijevoj ruci drži ploču tabula ansata na kojoj je isklesan datum proglašenja američke nezavisnosti. U blizini njenih nogu nalazi se pokidan lanac. Statua je simbol slobode i jedan od najpoznatijih simbola SAD-a. Visinom od 46,05 metara (sam kip) odnosno ukupnom visinom od 92,99 m (sa postoljem) spada među najviše statue svijeta. Do 1959. godine bio je i najviši kip svijeta.
