Super views
A_J, Apr 2024
Fantastic views of the city from Downtown Manhattan. The elevator ride is amazingly fast and you can sometimes feel the movement at the top!
Top of the world
Alessandro_F, Apr 2024
Relaxing way to see the city with a very knowledgeable guy giving an overview. We will come back at dawn
Three memorable visits
Timo_T, Apr 2024
To be third time at the same place. 1. Twin towers with my wife and two sons 2. Big hole in the ground, with godson and my wife. I felt a lot of sorrow around us 3. Now when the new Observatory has been ready for years I remember all the visits in my heart. Never forget the power of love.
Ann_F, Apr 2024
The event went smoothly. Security was present, but pleasingly inconspicuous. The video in the elevator was fascinating. It made me want to ride up and down multiple times! A surprise awaits you at the start of the observation deck 😀! I recommend buying the ticket that gives you some flexibility of the entrance time.
One world trade ctr

Great choice of observation tower
Kris_M, Apr 2024
It was fantastic great views and a unique experience, was a bit pricey for a coffee at the top but it was expected when you get $15 off.

First Sight
Theron_S, Mar 2024
Seeing the skyline for the first after 3 min. Movie, it was also a beautiful day it was great walking around the observation deck
Overpriced but comparable to other observatories
Kristen_V, Mar 2024
Very overpriced in my opinion. Still, the views are spectacular. The best part was the 45 second video in the elevator on the way up. Glad we saw it once.
Awesome experience and a must do .
Thomas_J, Mar 2024
This is a must do , absolute stunning views from the top and seems a fitting way to pay respect to those who lost their lives in 9/11. The whole new World Trade centre complex is beautifully designed and very impressive. Worth the money and ease of booking via Viator means you don’t have to stand in line for a ticket . Best part of our trip so far !
Excellent tour of the greatest building in NYC
Chris_M, Mar 2024
Chris was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgable and friendly while also having a great sense of humor. Truly a valuable asset to have him working for the World Trade Center.
Wonderful experience
HelenHe, Mar 2024
The whole check in process was smooth and fast. The video and the following view of NYC were amazing. The whole observatory is spacious and easy to see the whole NYC.
Good Views
Neil_W, Mar 2024
When we arrived it was showing as no visibility up the Observatory and was offered tickets for the next day which was clear. Amazing views of the financial district.
Purchase when you get there not in advance
jamie_W, Mar 2024

360 degrees
James_J, Feb 2024
The views are spectacular. I got a little emotional since I hadn’t been to the towers since I was at a wedding reception at the Windows of the World in the original tower. I also got a NYC history refresh. It was well worth the price of admission
