Full description
Celebrate the actions of the heroes and survivors of Stairwell B on a guided tour of the World Trade Center Complex. Follow the path taken by first responders and learn how they withstood the collapse of the 110-story tower while still inside it. Through photos and memoirs, the tour chronicles the events of 9/11, from the bravery of New York City’s firefighters to the Angel of Stairwell B and the 9/11 Surfer. The guided tour ends at Memorial Plaza, where you’ll learn how the new World Trade Center Complex was designed and constructed. Then visit the National 9/11 Memorial Museum on your own. Discover artifacts found in the wreckage of the former Twin Towers, the first responding vehicles, and the planes that hit the towers.  Continue your self-guided visit by exploring the One World Observatory. Take the 47-second elevator ride up to the observation deck and watch the transformation of Manhattan on the elevator’s HD monitors. Gaze at the grand view from the deck, which on a clear day allows you to view up to 4 different states.

I really enjoyed the tour. This is going to (maybe) sound strange. Let me explain -- It was a day of good emotion and reminder, as it caused me to re-live the day. The pictures shown and informational details provided were authentic to what really happened that day and in the USA. It will provide very real description and accurate information about that day -- and not just tour-operator guesses. This is an excellent lead-in to the Museum, which you will be able to do on your own. When done, you will have either re-lived the day's feelings, importance and shock or have a very good idea of what authentically happened that day.

The rise from the ashes of 911 is something else to behold. There is a sense of triumph over the tragic, morbid and ignominious past. It is a reminder of how much harm deranged and ideologically lost people can do. It is a monument to the spirit of the American people and a message of hope to never again endure the same tragedy.

Unique perspective you don't get from the museum alone
