  • A recommended experience for every New Yorker. I recommend going as a family. We must not forget this sad historical date  more »
  • It is good to go now when there are not that many tourists so you can take in the place and engage with it, especially the two pools on the sites of the towers. Very tender to see flowers in the...  more »

  • It was a great experience! A must see in New York. From my point of view, I suggest starting from the fourth floor, with the dinosaurs, which I think is the best part. Of course interests may be different for each person, but dinosaurs are the great attraction! The big animal area is also awesome! You need at least three hours to quickly see everything. For details, you'll probably take a whole day!
  • The main exhibit does not allow photography so it's all stuff that hasn't been seen before. Also you can download the app on your phone and have a voice guided tour. I used wireless ear phones and split them between me and my husband. Turned out great! So moving and respectful. Well done!
  • Everything about the memorial is done to perfection. It’s informative, emotional, filled with honor for victims and first responders. It’s so unique for a memorial/museum to be on the site of the events and to be built around it. It adds such a gravitas to the whole experience. Exploring the memorial will easily take 3-4 hours, and I would absolutely recommend downloading the app ahead of time to do an audio tour as you go. This is a MUST do if you’re in the city.
  • Did the memorial tour, our guide was Daniel, he was great, really great at explaining the layout of the outdoor memorial. You can also check out the outdoor memorial on your own for free. We also spent 3 hours in the museum, easily. Take time to check out the videos throughout the museum. There is an auditorium by the cafe that also shows videos, be sure not to overlook that part of the museum. Overall, a very thoughtful, intense and emotional museum.
  • Visited the 911 Memorial Museum in mid-December. We obtained tickets online prior to arriving, entry was quick and easy despite pretty heavy crowds. This place had a deep impact on me - it is easily accessible, capable of managing crowds while not detracting from the moving experience. Take time to watch the videos/movies that are offered - really well done and it it good to sit a spell and reflect. The full scope and magnitude of the tragedy is conveyed by this museum - very well done and it was the best part of our trip to NY. If you go to NY, make this a stop and plan on spending at least 3 hrs here, you can spend more time easily.
