What to expect

The One World Observatory at Freedom Tower offers expansive 360-degree views in all directions of New York City. Special Sky Pod elevators take you up in just 47 seconds; but, the experience is more than pretty views--it's an interactive visual experience. With a standard ticket, you can skip the hassle of the box office line and proceed right to the top! (Depending on how crowded it is, there might be some waiting to get to the Observatory!) Your visit includes:

  • Dynamically-generated world map that highlights hometowns of visitors
  • “Voices” and "Foundations", two programs that describe the building's history and the people who constructed it
  • Virtual time-lapse video of the development of New York City’s skyline from the 1500s to present-day
  • See Forever Theater™, a video presentation of the unique rhythm and pulse of the Big Apple in three dimensions
  • Sky Portal, a 14-foot wide circular disc in the floor with a real-time high-definition video of the streets below
  • City Pulse, a ring of monitors with gesture recognition technology for close-up views and personalized recommendations
