9/11 Memorial Tour Optional Museum & Observatory Ticket

Remember the terrible September 11, 2001 events on a 9/11 walking tour and journey through the former World Trade Center in New York.

New Yorkers lead the tour with a personal connection to the 9/11 attacks, including personal anecdotes and stories of tragedy and heroism.

With the 9/11 Museum and One World Observatory tickets, you can explore at your own pace once inside, as your guide will not accompany you here. 

Meet at St. Paul’s Chapel to see the church that miraculously survived the falling buildings and debris despite being only a block away from the World Trade Center. 

Learn how it was transformed into a makeshift rescue center and its iron fence into a bulletin board.

See the Engine and Ladder Company 10/10, the fire station at Ground Zero, and hear heroic stories of emergency responders at the Firefighter’s 9/11 Memorial Wall. 

As you enter the 9/11 Memorial, you will notice the Reflecting Absence Memorial, an artificial waterfall representing the vast void the tragedy left.

Examine the names of the nearly 3,000 victims placed around the twin waterfall alongside their friends, family members, and colleagues. 

Witness the new Freedom Towers and World Trade Center as they rise from the ground. Stay as long as you like at this lovely 8-acre oasis.

Use this timed entry ticket at the 9/11 Museum and One World Observatory. 

You can explore at your own pace once inside, as your guide will not accompany you here. 

See 9/11 artifacts and listen to recordings from people present on the day.

Take a walk to the Observatory and admire its engineering and architecture. 

Visit the lobby of Freedom Tower to see the documentary “Voices,” which honors the men and women of the World Trade Center. 

Then take the Sky Pod elevator for a 60-second ascent of 1,250 feet.

Visit the See Forever Theater on floor 102 before heading to the main observation deck on the 100th. 

Enjoy immersive LED displays, interactive touchscreen videos, dining options, and a view of Manhattan’s iconic skyline.
