Was perfect

Was so much more than we expected it to be. We learned so many things we did not know about 9/11. It was everything my husband that is a firefighter wanted.

Very moving and respectfully presented and commemorated but does feel uncomfortable in parts. That said I would have regretted not going to see it

Place to to tick off the box...... Extremely poignant. Not too far from the usual NYC sights. Nothing much to write about.. But has a significance in terms of modern day attrocities and intolerance towards society

The way the workshop and location are organized is a true testament of the dedication that America feels towards those who were lost in 9/11. A must visit for anyone who steps into the USA.

The museum was beautifully done and moving. The way it is laid out is empacting and it really gives you an overall impact. The only drawback from the museum is the crowd which they have no control over. People were usin selfie stick. Really? It was hard to see everything due to the crowd unfortunately. All in all this museum... More

This museum is a must for all citizens to see! The plans and deep respect are evident throughout the museum. Chills and stunned silence are my feelings of this museum! I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to pay my respects and never forget!

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
