Sky Pod Elevator

As you whizz up to the 102nd floor on this elevator, you'll watch the incredible, virtual development of New York from the times of European settlement in the 16th century until the present day.


This exhibition is dedicated to those who built the World Trade Center. This is followed by the Foundations exhibition, which lets you see the ground beneath the building.

What people are saying about One World Trade Center

John was a tremendous guide who demonstrated the real effects of 9/11!

Reaffirming LIFE!! Thank you for an inspirational demonstration of the Holy Spirit in your life sir!!!

A thoughtful and reflective place to remember

This might be the quietest place in NYC. The simplicity and reverence with which these items are presented make for a meaningful, approachable, and respectful tribute to lives lost on September 11th, 2001.

We saw the long line for tix, but I had printed them!

Museum & memorial were touching and well done. They are a wonderful tribute to the NY citizens, including the first responders & all others lost in that horrific tragedy.

great experience, great to skip the long line

There was a big crowd in front of the ticket office so we were glad we could go through to the entrance, The lady who controlled the access was so kind to let us in half an hour before our scheduled time. In no time we were in the escalatori. They make a big show of it. But the main thing is that the view is spectaculair. A must have seen one! And you can take all the time you need!

Our guide, Elizabeth, was informative, friendly, and professional.

My friends and I had a wonderful time touring and learning about the events of 9/11. I strongly encourage anyone considering a visit to the 9/11 site to use Getyourguide. Elizabeth, our guide, was excellent, and enhanced our visit. We got much more out of our visit then we would have on our own.
