No question that staying and visiting the Financial Districts has it's less known advantages. Without a doubt, seeing the Ground Zero area and taking the tour of the museum is not for the faint of heart. You get a perspective about the tragic loss of human life, a computer directory of all those who perished, and testimonials of those that... More

Didn't like my visit here, but well renovated. The subway ride down there may have been part of my dislike so perhaps walking or going via wall street is a better option?

Everyone should get here once in their lifetime. It lets us " Never Forget " and the museum organizers have done a remarkable job in arranging pieces of the building with pieces of people's live who were there, dome of whom lived and some died.

They made this just like it just happened. Some of the pictures were real, they made us feel, like it was real now. We left with a lot of sorrow.

Its a must see, to actually stand in the place where you watched the tragedy unfold was unbelievable. However some of the displays are extremely moving and emotional.

I went during opening week, and be prepared for a very somber look into the events that took place on 9/11. This is a very hard few hours, but 100% worth it.

Word of advice, Do not listen to any of the skeptics of this place complaining about price and other unimportant things. Everybody and I mean Everybody needs to experience this place at some point in there lives. This is very important part of American history. When you visit the museum, expect to be here for several hours. It has a... More

This one of the best things we did in New York. I gather it's contentious amongst New Yorkers who feel they don't need a reminder, but for foreign visitors its a place for us to appreciate the sorrow and the hardship for all the families who lost loved ones.

Having visited Ground Zero not long after 9/11 and the Memorial Park area about 3 years ago, my wife and I have been waiting anxiously for the Memorial Museum to open. We had reservations for 11:30 AM, joined a long line to enter and didn't leave until about 4:15 PM. The museum is very well designed with all of the... More

The 9/11 memorial was the most emotive experience I have ever had in my life. The way the museum was designed was powerful and moving. Not for kids.
