The 9/11 Memorial Tour which is given outdoors is truly exceptional. The young lady who did our tour was intelligent, well-informed and very respectful, without being sentimental. (I don't remember her name, but she came from LA.) Her tour was truly a part of the Memorial itself, as she not only explained the theme of "absence" behind the Memorial design,... More

We didn't do a tour or go into the museum, but visited the fountains. They are very well designed to respect all the lost lifes. The water flows eternally and you can't see where it eventually goes. Very touching place. We did visit first at the daylight but had to come back during the night time with all the lights... More

The memorial itself is quite well designed and does justice to the remembrance of the many people who lost their lives. Even with all the crowds, the sound of the waterfalls and the leafy trees dotted around the monuments give a sense of peace and tranquility. The museum is very well planned, with a lot of very interesting information and... More

We took the Memorial tour, and truly advise visitors to take it rather than just getting general admission to the museum. They give you headphones so no matter if you fall behind you can hear the tour guide loud and clear. What the tour gives you that you can't get simply wandering around, is a deeper perspective on the artifacts... More

Our family took the memorial tour and it was for sure a very valuable, memorable and touching 45 minutes. The guide told us in a very personal, respectful and professional way about the 9/11 catastrophe by connecting the events to individuals who died in the awful terrorist attack, and are named on the memorial. We are not US citizens, but... More

A very emotional experience, yet it was pulled together very well. It walked you through the whole experience honoring the memories of all including those lost in the 1993 booming at the same location. Be prepared to remember how you felt that day, and see a glimpse of what those who were there went through. Truly an emotional experience, but... More

I went with 2 other friends who also lived in Manhattan during 2001. We printed our tickets so we didn't have to wait on line although checking seemed cursory at best and I'd hope they would allow mobile tickets in the near future to reduce paper waste. The security theater of the metal detectors seems an obligatory waste, especially since... More

My wife grew up in Boston and I grew up in NJ before we moved to the West Coast in 1997. on our drive East, we stopped in Oklahoma City to visit the memorial there.

I was really impressed with the monument; 2 enormous fountains that represent the two towers that were destroyed with the names of all those that died cut into the metal perimeters. Just being there and running my hand over all those names was a very solemn but extremely worthwhile experience. We did not go into the museum because the line-up/queue... More

Touring the museum was confusing and disorganized. I can only imagine what non-English speakers experienced. Renting the headphones with the narrative was of very limited value although hearing De Niro narrate was a nice touch. The numbers corresponding to those on the taped narration should have been tastefully affixed to the exhibits so that a visitor could have more easily... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
