Ground Zero Memorial

No words- just tears. It was simple and beautiful. Frustrating that people were tossing coins and leaning on the plaques. Guards and NYPD officers were wnderful!

There aren't really words for this, but it was a sobering and memorable experience. I'm thankful I could take my 10 and 12 year old so they could learn about this piece of our Nation's history.

What a living classroom! Took my 16 and 18 yr old granddaughters and discovered what they are not being taught in the classroom. This profound museum is filled with truth, raw emotion, political reality and brings out the best character of the American people. The stories must be told. Short films were excellent. This museum allowed me to have good... More

Very respectful and tastefully presented displays that tell the story of 9/11 and memorialize those who were lost. It does not homogenize the event as another unfortunate tragedy but rather seeks to focus on the tragedy of each individual loss of life. It is a somber and evocative experience. It also illustrates the resilience of the american people especially when... More

The museum was well thought out and very moving. They have the extra touch of people who are there and available to answer questions, as they all had... More

We had an honest talk about whether we were ready emotionally to do this and decided to go for it. We went at 930 am before the crowds really started. It made viewing the memorial more private and impactful. When we left the museum 3 hrs later the memorials were packed. We bought timed tickets in advance on their website... More

This was the first attraction that we book in advance. We took the tour with a guide which took the experience to the next level. I highly suggest booking the guided tour. This was a emotional moment, the museum has been put together with such thought.

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.
