What to expect

Choose between two ticket types:

Standard Ticket - with this option you can skip the hassle of the box office line. Depending on how crowded it is, there might be some waiting to get up to the top.
Priority Reserve Ticket - skip all the lines and go straight to the top.

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 a quick 60 seconds. But the experience is more than pretty views - it's an interactive visual experience. Your visit includes:

  • Dynamically-generated world map that highlights hometowns of visitors
  • “Voices” and "Foundations" - two programs which describe the building's history and the people who built it
  • Virtual time-lapse video of the development of New York City’s skyline from the 1500s to present day
  • See Forever Theater™ - 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 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
