Definitely visit and pay your respects, a beautiful and perfectly fitting memorial. We didn't go to the information museum but visiting the free memorials themselves were very emotional. A very moving experience.

It's painful to watch this memorial seeing the debris of the actual WTC building while looking at the new one. I'm a New Jerseyan and the memories are vivid when the twin towers went down. I hope people remembers what the memorial is about and keep that in mind when visiting. Pay respect to all the people who died.....the names... More

This is really something everyone should see if they come to New York. Two huge memorials where the buildings used to stand, with all the names of the people who perished engraved into the stone and waterfalls. Touching and sad but an essential part of your visit.

It's small in scale but huge in affect. It's an emotional thing to stand and look straight ahead knowing what used to be in the skyline. It lists all 749 names of the residents of NJ who perished on 9/11, but that said it was hard to find the name of an acquaintance of mine, as the names are not... More

Really really nice job they did here. The scenery is fantastic, the message and respect paid is very deep. If you were at all affected by the tragedy of 9/11, you need to visit here.

The exhibition is really impressive, the chornology of the terrorist attacks in the museum are immersing you in 2001.

With it's beautiful design and plantings, it was good to walk around despite the very cold weather. The stark contrast between the pools and surroundings were amazing. The weather also kept the crowds away in the AM but it picked up in the early afternoon. Quite sad in a sense as a memorial goes considering the devastation, but a fine... More

This beautiful memorial has been constructed in a perfect position as a tribute to the NJ victims of 9/11. Its location is such that you can look through the centre of the two walls to see where the new building now is. The two walls represent where the twin towers used to be. Incredibly moving and well worth seeing.

This is a sad place which come to remind us how everything can suddenly change in a moment. It's an important monument but it's not over whelming. Note that there is a small screen on the side of the statue where you can type the name of a 9/11 victim and it will show you it's exact location on the... More
