Never forget! This is a must for anyone who remembers where they were when this tragedy shook America. This is also an important museum for those children too young to remember. We must never forget. The final part of the museum reminds me of the Holocaust Museum in Washington D. C. Two very different world events and yet, both very... More

Before booking our first trip to New York City we did a lot of research and price matching. The 9/11 Tribute was on the top of our list and doesn't disappoint, the way it has been designed is brilliant, it shows everything that happened on the day, why it happened and what has been done to prevent it happening in...

Be sure to purchase tickets ahead of time to reduce your wait in line. Also, many people told us there were two parts to this museum, otherwise you might miss it. We thought the second part was the best.

Very well done memorial and museum tribute to the victims and survivors of 911. Wasn't sure what it would be like and put it off until the last day of our trip due to the sad nature of the event. Would not miss it for the world. Sad and poignant experience but a necessary one so the events of the... More

Very thought provoking & a real tribute to the terrible tragedy of 9/11, walking through the displays really brings home the horror of that day but also the city's ability to recover. Some well thought out displays that help understand how this happened Would visit again as I think you would get something every time you went

Took a spontaneous tour with a friend and so glad I did. Definitely an emotional rollercoaster but well worth it. Plan to spend a lot of time, there are endless things to look at!

For those who remember this unspeakably terrible tragedy as clearly as I do it is a cathartic experience to spend a few hours in this museum. It's tasteful, thoughtful, but not melodramatic or gruesome.

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.
