Itinerary for the day: Depart O’Hara parking lot by 9am sharp. Arrive in front of the 9/11 Memorial around 11:00 or 11:15, You have time to wander around and grab a bite to eat before we line up at the group entrance at 12:15 for our 12:30 tour. This is not a guided tour it is very self explanatory with audio and video as you move through the museum. Be prepared for a highly emotional experience as you relive the day the entire world held its breath. You may stay as long as you like in the museum, two to three hours should allow you to experience everything. If you are interested in joining us for a tour of the newly opened “ONE WORLD OBSERVATORY”, I have scheduled this tour for 3:30. it is in the same location as the museum so we will just walk over. The SkyPod Elevators climb 102 stories in 47 seconds. This astonishing ride reveals the transformation of New York City from unsettled lands to today’s remarkable forest of skyscrapers. See “Forever Theater” where you are surrounded with the rhythms of the city. This heart-pumping audiovisual experience sets up your first glimpse of the spectacular skyline. It will take your breath away! The Sky Portal is a 14 foot wide circular glass disc that offers an unforgettable perspective using high definition footage of the streets 100 floors below. Estimated time spent on this tour is 45 min to an hour. There are restaurants right in the Observatory if you choose to stay and eat. You do have free time until the bus departs at 6:30 sharp!
