I was a commuter on 9/11 at the WTC. The museum experience was so respectful but very real...sights and sounds give the viewer a glimpse into the horrible day. Be prepared for real audio and video. You can also partake in a bit of history on roots of this terrorism regarding OBL.

Every American should see this. It's sobering, but very well done. Allow 2 hours. And take tissues......

This place reminds me so many good and bad memories. It was a very patriotic time and we really stuck together to pass the hardship and all the losses. Worth paying a visit for sure.

Thought provoking and you get an insight into that terrible day and following the devastation. So many lives lost. Innocent victims. This museum has been done very sympathetically and respectfully to those who lost their lives, their families, friends and the brave and courageous who helped.

A beautifully designed area befitting a national memorial. Plenty of space to walk around and you don't feel rushed at all.

It brings the event much closer to reality and is a must see Museum. Make your reservations in advance and be prepared for 2-3 hours.

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.
