It was definitely worth the additional fee to have a guided tour of the museum. The detailed explanations and personal touches added from listening to a native New Yorker made the experience much more meaningful. We spent a full day here. Families should note that...More

The 9/11 memorial was one of the main attractions for us when visiting NYC and I have to admit I was disappointed with how it is so commercialised now. Heartbreaking artefacts and pictures and video documentaries. Breathtaking looking at the crushed Fire engine and ambulance....More

We spent a good few hours here. Very tasteful memorial - the pools with names of victims are lovely. Inside, very informative from all perspectives. Films on the events of the day, stories told from audio clips of witnesses, sections on the rise of Al-Queda...More

After a difficult trip where we attempted to see the Statue of Liberty but came back from New Jersey instead we arrived at the Memorial Center. It’s an astonishing tasteful and sensitive monument that we would recommend to everyone. An example of how to deal...More

We were hesitant about whether we were ready to visit this museum. We have been visiting NYC for years and could never step inside. The price is on the higher side but it is well worth every penny. The exhibits are very detailed and have...More

Skip the long entry lines and book the guided tour ahead of time. There is a special entry for guided tour tickets. The guided tour is 60 minutes and is done with headphones so everyone can hear. Afterwards we spent another two hours wandering through...More

SO worth any wait! My experience was from a Sunday morning, about 11am. Maybe a 10 minute queue, but it moved well. As Bob said, there are many places to sit, but there is a lot of walking involved, and standing briefly... More
