  • Really one until it does the place does not take dimension of what happened, once inside you put goose bumps.

  • I'm suspicious because I love American history!! But the Museum and Memorial of 11/09 is too beautiful! It's a quiet place and a lot of respect. The pools are beautiful and the Museum tells the story of the twin towers, since your construction until the attack of 11/09. are images, memories and a lot of emotion in a beautiful place and all built to honor the buildings and their victims. Worth the visit!

  • Is very good throughout the Museum and recommend that audiotext service you guide through all of the explicandotelo Museum.

  • Outstanding. What a way to make something of what was the most horrific event of modern day. The most powerful exhibition I have been to. First you see the outside and the magnificent, square-type waterfalls where the towers stood. The names round the side and a rose put into some obviously by friends/family. Instantly you feel the emotion of what has gone on here. We then went into the museum and I can't fault how this was put Together. So many pieces from the site, so many memores, incredible. You will see a lot of photo's from my review but there is also an further inside section which has more personal items and more in-depth information that you are not allowed to take photos of (rightly so). For anyone who hasn't been, go, make it a must when visiting NYC, you really won't regret it. Extra tip: they have a free coat drop when you get into the museum where you are welcomed to leave a tip, where if you do you get a souvenir rubber band.
  • 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.
  • Excellent exhibits, very complete picture of what happened that day. I don't know how everyone doesn't walk through the place crying. They do a great job of not vilifying anyone. The films do an effective job of showing timelines, and displaying the humanity (and loss of humanity) that happened that morning. My husband want very interested in going, but afterward said he was glad he did.
  • 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.
