On This Day, May 6th 1889: The Eiffel Tower is officially opened to the public at the Universal Exposition in Paris. 

The fair marked the first time that visitors were allowed to go onto the yet unfinished Eiffel Tower. Though not yet completed, exhibition attendees were allowed to walk up to the second floor platform. Workers had worked through the night the day before the exhibition opened to complete the necessary construction needed to safely allow patrons to set foot upon the structure.
