This is a must see in NYC. The museum gives you a feeling of love for all those who sacrificed on 911. The museum brings the feelings of 911 back to the surface. All who lived through this event will be moved and understand what the city experienced on that terrible day. I spent 5 hours there and could have... More

I found the memorial hard going but the museum demolished me to the point I had to leave. This is a reminder of the total waist of life for absolutely no good reason. It's a must see but take the tissues .

We went to ground Zero in June 2008 before the rebuilding had really got under way. It was very moving and especially the guide recounting some of her personal reflections

You must see the 9-11 museum and memorial because it gives the real impact of what happened. There is so much to see at Ground Zero and we spent 3 hours here looking at the fountains etc.

An amazing feeling of how much hard work and care had been put into making it a place nobody will ever forget.

Spent 3.5 hrs here and did not feel the time passing as was completely entranced by the artifacts here and the personal stories. Do not miss visiting this museum. Buy tickets in advance on the 9/11 website to avoid queuing - we went on 10/11 so perhaps there were more visitors but the queue to buy tickets was very long... More

Book your tickets on the internet in advance to save queuing. A lot of thought and effort has gone into this museum and really takes you back to that awful day.

We were able to visit the museum on the 3rd day of it's opening and were very touched by the displays and stories. Brought the tragedy closer to home seeing the site in person rather than on TV. Highly recommend taking a guided tour of the museum.

I was in the US on 9/11 but in a city other than NYC, so when we visited the memorial and museum the full specter of the horror perpetrated on that day came rushing back. I found the museum, treated the event with reverence, factualness and without rancor. If you wish to pay your respects to those that lost their... More
