The view from inside the memorial to the former spot where the WTC stood is emotional. If you take time to linger you will feel it.

This tribute was nicely designed. It has all the names of the New Jersey residents who were killed in the 9/11 bombings of the World Trade Center. An emotional tribute.

Nice place to visit if you are in the area. Memorial site is moving. Behind the site, there is a nice view to the NYC. If you take panoramic view it comes out really nice. Enjoy the park and view of the water front.

We did a road trip and NYC was one of our stops - the world trade center site was one of the places we had on our must do. We didn't go into the museum but just walked around the memorial site. It is very moving.

I had seen pictures of this memorial but they do not do it justice. The fountains are beautiful! Easy to get to by subway.

We came here after our day at the Liberty Science Center. It was great to finally see it in person, and we also had a great view of the city skyline and the back of Lady Liberty.

This museum told the story very well. A great deal of thought has gone into the whole project. There was a real feeling of subdued respect. Very moving.

Beautiful reflecting pools with waterfalls. It was sad though reading the names of all those that passed away.

Only thing I have to really say is that even though we had the New York Pass, they still required us to make a donation.
