What people are saying about One World Trade Center
I would had given this 5 stars except for the fact that I thought the observatory was a total ripoff. It was the most expensive elevator ride I have ever taken. I was insulted by the fact that you were herded into an area and asked if you wanted to pay for an I pad to see what you were looking at. I was also not pleased with the man who “showed us the way “ to the meeting place, waited outside the deli and then tried ( successfully) to sell us the books. But that was my own fault . I was very happy our guide who gave an excellent tour.
Empecably done with the families of those who were lost in this tragedy in mind. Loved hearing the different families sharing their loss. Really put the names to the faces impacted me the most. Alot of work of putting together the artifacts for the collection. Made an impact on me as well. To really see the destruction of the day. Watching the events on TV doesn't compare to seeing the museum Up close an personal
Very moving. Beautifully curated. Lots of information - too much to absorb. Lots and lots and lots of memorabilia, too much info about the building of the twin towers so you get a bit overloaded before you can get past the tragic event and then absorb anything by the time you get to the "why?" - the part about Al Quaeda. I would have liked to study that, but I was overloaded by then.
Amazing experience. From the moment you enter this massive building, you are swept up in the enormity of it all. The lift takes 47 seconds and the lift walls display video footage of the ascent. Views are unbelievable. So much to see. We arrived just before sunset and stayed for cocktails in the bar after dark. An absolutely brilliant attraction.
the museum and memorial are well done, glad I went. Took my adult daughter who was in 5th grade when it was happening. Was very interesting to hear her perspective on what she remembered about that day, and the impact of her it has on her life and development.
