Holy Ground. A solemn reminder

An awesome place. The monuments themselves are starkly beautiful. Officers around were really friendly and helpful. Don't miss this place.

Nothing to dislike. Just like they recommend on their website, a must to do, before going to the 9/11 memorial

Nothing too dislike. Amazing place, peaceful. Considering the amount of people who were there is was calm and quiet, almost unnatural. The most surreal place we have ever been, very tasteful and respectfully organized exhibitions. Very moving.

We should have waited for a tour guide. The next time we will either buy the self guide or join a tour group. It's a bit too overwhelming to try to figure it out by yourself.

People were so respectful of this museum. It just gives you an idea of the enormous losses that occurred that day.

We purchased the guided tour of the Memorial Grounds. It was very well done. We expected to spend about 2 hours at the Museum and were forced by hunger to leave after 4 hours. Well worthy seeing.

There is a lot to read and see so give yourself plenty time. There were many people in the museum but did not deter us from enjoying it. It is very well done.

All because of TripAdvisor, my husband and I booked a place at this small museum. It takes two hours to fully view and appreciate the museum and its artefacts.

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.
