I was so moved by how much this museum has with its artifacts. I spent 3 hours there. Nothing compares. I was very moved by the whole thing. A must see. Order tickets online before you go to avoid the lines.

This is an absolute must for anyone of any religion. It's so hard to describe the feelings you feel as you walk through the museum. The only thing I can say for sure is I feel a much better person having seen this. But be prepared for years to come out even if you're not usually the crying type.

It took a good 3 hours to tour the museum, looking at artifacts and presentations. The tributes to those who lost their lives were the most significant spaces to us. Overall the museum is difficult to experience because the signage is small and often poorly lit. Much of it is low and blocked from view by other visitors. It also... More

This tour is being wrongly mistaken for the 911 museum, it is not and doesn't come anywhere close to it. We wasted our money on the confusing description. We got there to be told by the tour lady that alot of people do mistake it (which is why they probably have so much good feedback on here because people think... More

I was disappointed with the museum. Everything in the museum were things that you have already seen or heard on television during the 9 11 event. There really wasn't anything new in the museum.

The memorial is very appropriate, movingly so. The popularity, ie the crowds prevent it from being too distressing. The Survivor Tree adds optimism. The museum is now open, it is worth getting advance tickets to prevent queuing. It is very detailed and well worth the visit. Do wait in the queue to see the film - the three wall projection... More

This is a must see if you visit NYC. It is heart sad but something to see. Makes you realize how fast life can change. To see the pools and the names of the people who died and to honor them is a wonderful sight. I am glad I brought my family to see this.

After lots of walking and hurrying to get here, I was not disappointed. They had everything here from the bent beams that once supported the Trade Centers, to firefighters torn gear. There were many videos, letters from families, and things you just can't imagine without visiting this site. Afterwards, we went to the fountains and the site to stand and... More
