It's small. Only 1 room. but very interesting. There is a lot of pictures you can find anywhere else. There is part of air plain and so much more I recommend it

I was skeptical about this until we arrived at the site. The museum is breathtaking. I am not easily impressed but the thought and care put into this was awe-inspiring. Winter is a good time to attend… I would imagine shorter queues. Certainly worth the money.

I was told about the GZ MW and I'm really glad I went to this instead of the main museum. Our group were greeted by a really friendly gut (forgot his name sorry it was 5/8/14) The place is a small apt but is very well set up, very respectful of 9/11 and very informative. The background stories are amazing... More

Sombre experience which brings it home what a horrific incident took place on 9/11. I wouldn't say enjoyable but it was an honor I am pleased to have experienced and been allowed to pay respects to all who suffered.

Words are difficult to find as I write this review. The events of 9/11 are still hard to understand. Being in Tulsa when it happened we experienced it through the media coverage. I knew that I would visit the Memorial Site during my NYC trip. I read about the GZMW and checked out the reviews posted here on Trip Advisor.... More

Visiting the museum was very bittersweet. When you first walk in you realise the true devastation caused and it makes you feel cold. But what a great memorial to all of those who lost lives. A place to learn, reflect & pay respects. The museum has been tastefully done and I'm pleased we visited.

Was bittersweet- loved going there but left sad. The stories and pictures you see throughout gave me goosebumps.

The memorial primarily focuses on the memorials to the victims. The information on what happened on 9/11 is stuffed in a small room that is extremely crowded with people. I finally gave up trying to get through it because it was so crowded. It is a shame that with all of the space that they have it they did not... More
