We visited as a group of five and were joined by another two couples. When Trey the tour guide explained what we were about to see I was a little sceptical. How could one small room keep us interested for two hours? How wrong was I. The time flew by. After watching a short video we were all given audio... More

This is a very small museum with not many people at any one time (unlike the 9/11 Memorial). There are many photographs and articles that are numbered. You get an audio headset and go around clicking on the numbered exhibits to hear the story behind it. All of it was interesting.

This is a must visit, even to show your respect. It's a sharp reminder of what we are up against in this world. We did not go into the museum which is now open but it is said that you come out moved to tears. When there visit the new Freedom tower viewing platform pre- book before you set off... More

While this museum is in the Chelsea District and away from the 911 Memorial, it is a short subway ride, you must go to it! It is well worth your time. Allow at least 2 hours and bring tissue. You will hear first hand stories and see photos that tell it all! While this museum can be emotional and heartbreaking,... More

A must if you are visiting New York. Lots of artefacts from 9/11 with parts of the buildings and commentary. There are several floors to visit and it's easy to spend several hours looking around. There's also a small cafe for light refreshments

Seems this is part of paying your respects to the victims of this terrible tragedy. Take the time to listen to the survivors. It reinforces how people continue to suffer because of this senseless occurance and to not repeat it.

We were very moved by the Museum. They have not sensationalised the event at all, just made you aware of the people who died, the heroism of the rescue workers and given a wonderful but sad desription of the events of the day.

This place has so much history behind it but with the whole feeling of emptiness from what happened here

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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.
