The tour is conducted by individuals closely associated with the 9/11 event. Background information on the construction of the twin towers was helpful. Its a short walk from the Memorial Center, with stops along the way culminating at the memorial itself. The personal stories of the volunteers are very emotional and help bring the reality of the disaster to bear.

Best place to see and fill what happened at this place. A lot of artifacts. Many of artifacts is large in size. Fool size damaged vehicles, Elevator motor, huge peaces of supporting beams and so on. Video and audio footage and so much more. Loved it

Beautiful museum and lots of artifacts. It was a bit scary re-living this day, but everyone should visit.

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

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.
