Visited there on Tuesday and was not prepared for what you saw. Very tasteful and well worth visiting new york for. New York is very much like a large city shopping centre with some highlights but Ground Zero well there are no words to say how it makes you feel. The museum is so sad but very tastefully done.

The actual Ground Zero site is just across the road so it gives you a real perspective of the affect that it had. Its very sad but it a nice place to go and pay your respects

We scheduled our appointment for the Museum. Not sure what to expect we showed up at a building on West 14th. Surely we were in the wrong area. But No. A young woman greets our group of 15 and takes us into the building to the 2nd floor. The tour is actually 'do it yourself'. We enter a room about... More

We visited this museum after visiting the 9/11 Memorial Museum 2 days earlier. It was an interesting visit but not what we were expecting. There are approximately 100 exhibits in a single room accompanied by a handheld/headphone audio guide. some items recovered from the site, lots of photos taken during the clearing of the site, these were probably the most...

This was a very sobering experience, that brought back that infamous day very poignantly. The artefacts, accounts and pictures on display revealing a very personal side to this tragedy.

We must remember. It brought back the memories of the day. My kids did not remember so much, since they were little and from Houston, and they really like walking around and learning about History.

This was a museum well worth a visit. At first I was shocked and a bit disappointed by the fact that it is fully contained in only one room. But the presentation is excellent, the film and the artifacts and back stories are expertly described via headset recording and touched us deeply. As a bonus, while visiting we were honored... More
