The gift shop was amazing - pricey - but had anything a person would want as a souvenir. I particularly liked the flag with pictures of all the victims on it :'

Amazing presentation of artifacts and memorabilia from the horrific 911 terrorist attack on our country. Well-presented, well-preserved, and well worth the time to visit. It is, though, a bit emotionally overwhelming. There is a small restaurant on the second floor that has a nice variety...More

Bought back many memories. Seeing the open areas of where each building stood was moving. the overall experience was somewhat emotional. How this was designed and put together was tastefully done.

For those of you who have never seen exactly what 9-11 caused, this is a must see. It is just breath taking some of the displays. Seeing on TV is no comparison to seeing it in person.

This unique experience is a must do when visiting New York! Very intimate setting. Because it's such an emotional experience it nice to be able to go at your own pace with the Bose earphones and remote.

It probably would have better if I went by myself or with just my wife. I spent so much so much money because I had to get at least one thing for each one of my children.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

I think it is free to enter, but they ask for a donation to the welfare fund.
