It was a sad moment for me and my wife because it was our first visit and just to be there reminded us the horrific attack New York has that day. Got A few pictures that I will upload later on.

Beautiful tribute to the 9/11 tragedy. Reading the names, etc. put their lives in view. They weren't just the close to 3,000 that you heard about. You're reading their names. One woman's name with "& her unborn child", made me want to cry. The old, the middle age, the new career person, and the unborn died. Wow!

Another memorial worth the trip. It was moving and emotional and very nicely put together. I'll stop by again next time I'm in the area.

We visited after sundown snd had the place to our self. A beautiful view of the Manhattan Skyline. A very touching place - a shame though that some of the lights on the names didn't work.

We stood, in silence, with tears in our eyes, at this wonderful memorial to those who lost their lives. Very moving.

I feel such a heavy feeling in my heart when going here. I will never forget what I witnessed that day, on September 11th 2001. Being right across the Hudson, had me watching the horrific drama happen, first hand. I'd suggest going here to everyone who hasn't. We mustn't ever forget!

There is nothing to dislike or liked, except that everyone in the world should remember the reasons for this disaster and the many souls who were lost forever, the impacted families and the impact to New York and the world.

They did an awesome job capturing the humanity and the sadness and the spirit of the events. I watched it on tv but this museum makes it real and personal and humbling. Every one who can should visit. Tips: Plan 3-4 hours so you get to see the whole exhibition. Prepare to wait in line to enter. Do the outside... More

Bottom Line: A must see if you are visiting the park or science museum. Nothing more I can say about it.

The 9/11 Memorial is a must see for all Americans.....it's a sad, melancholic, bittersweet tribute to 9/11 and the victims. Unfortunately it's getting very touristy and crowded. The lines to the museum are insane. But it's worthwhile to see the memorial & and walk around the plaza.
