I lived in New York for four years and remember then twin towers. We visited the museum this year in April. It is hard to believe that this museum has been built into the foundations of the Twin Towers and most of what you see is still part of the buildings, it takes most of the day to properly see...

Very interesting and very important to teach the importance of that tragedy to younger generations. Didn't like the pictures of the people jumping from the windows though. I felt like I was a voyeur.

Our group went to the tours at the World Trade Center site before visiting this museum - that's the way to do it in my opinion. This Ground Zero tour, however, gives a different perspective to the whole event and is most definitely NOT simply a repeat of the 9/11 tours. At WTC you learn about the "Day of" experiences...

This is an amazing, but somber place. The layout was well thought out and the displays were thought provoking and made you feel like you were actually there. At most times even though there were many people there...you could hear a pin drop.

The experience of visiting the Museum was for me both sympathetic and touching shows the elements of the devastation to not one God twin towers but the sour rounding area and the lives taken that day which must no be forgotten. Haunting but serene I am so privileged to have made this visit .

This is a very moving tribute to the New York people and the remarkable way the city responded to the 9/11 tragedy. A new appreciation of the effect to the community.

The things at the Museum are very interesting but the memories of all the fallen and killed there is overwhelming

Excellent tour with knowledgeable guide. Was good value for the money and a worthwhile experience. Leant about some of the stories behind 9/11 and made the trip round the museum more interesting.

Very touching, interesting and lots of memories. You revive all. It's kind of heartbreaking and emotional at the same time. They catch everything from that day. I recomend you buy your tickets on advance and have a time reservation too.
