We spent 3 hours here and could easily have returned for more. Beautifully presentations of daily newspaper from all over US and world. Great presentations of 9-11 in press and videos, as well as other historic events. Nice cafeteria with reasonable prices. Worth the price.

Superb building design and great exhibits. I visited when a Katrina exhibit was up, and being from New Orleans, where no news was available for weeks - it was overwhelming to see the front pages of the world's press covering the event - great for...More
