  • Without a doubt, another place to go and meet. It is very well prepared to make the visit comfortable. At the turn of the main entrance a few vending machines are of tickets which makes shopping faster. It is worth visiting.

  • Great place to reflect on one the most memorable days in the lives of all Americans. The museum gives breathtaking stories and displays over a very large area that will keep you walking for at least a couple hours. It will be hard for most people to not be emotional, but I feel that everything presented is done in a tasteful way that can now be educational for almost everyone. There is also a great view of One Tower from here as well.
  • A wonderful tribute to those who passed away on 9/11 it was very emotional and an experience I will never forget. My biggest issue was the staff that work there are not very friendly . I had purchased tickets ahead of time and when I got there had to still stand in a long line and then was told that you still need a registration ticket to get in so that was another line. I was not the only individual that had these printed tickets Offline that weren't good until you get their tickets however having the staff explain this to me when I was unsure of what they were trying to tell me and the young lady's voice and tone was not very nice she was rude to me and many other people in line . I also didn't like the fact when we were standing in line how they were yelling at people to take your tickets take your tickets Etc. Not a very welcoming site for such a somber tribute. Staff need to under as a visitor to NYC not everyone understands procedures nor knows them . A little more compassion and kindness from staff is definitely needed at this site.
  • As someone living in the UK, we obviously know about what happened on 9/11 and the world changed forever that day, yet for someone who didn’t witness first hand, I was pretty much in my own bubble. But this museum really brought it home for me and made me reflect on the impact of such a horrific day on the people of NYC. In a sense it made it real. The pictures of the victims and the detailed explanation of the sequence of events and how the day unfolded made me very sad. I’d really recommend this place. A humbling experience and must-do while in NYC.
  • An amazing memorial. Great way to teach young kids about what happened. At the end, there does need to be something to bring the mood up however. It just ends depressing, the same way it started. It would be great if it ended with something like how hundreds of thousands of people pitched in to help out, or with a video like boatlift that brings people's moods up. Otherwise, great museum.
  • Absolutely amazing tribute! Spent a good few hours walking around looking at the huge amount of artifices. Very emotional and powerful memorial. Would highly recommend. Don’t confuse this museum with the 9/11 Tribute Museum. This is the larger of the two museums and based directly underneath the fountains/foundations of the original WTC.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
