A neat feature but not for everyone

This feature of the 9/11 museum is cool but might be too heavy or sad for small kids or those directly affected by the tragedy.

A deeply moving exhibition detailing the events of 9/11, however the museum was dimly lit which made it difficult to view certain things. As the artefacts are not ancient I could not see the reason for this. The remembrance fountain outside is wonderful memorial to those who lost their lives.

This event is very well done. The museum captures the terrible relevance of the somber monument. It should be a must see for everyone.

The first thing you see when you walk into the room is the walls covered in debris from 9/11 and it makes you think. About what really happened that disasterous day. You get to talk to a man who experienced it first hand and that hits you hard. I would pick this over 9/11 museum anytime. Plus free hershies in... More

So worth it! I would pick this over the 9/11 Museum at the memorial sight. So interactive and personal. Seems small at first but the self guided tour has about 100 different exhibits of all shapes and sizes. The beginning video is so moving, and it's amazing getting to hold different artifacts recovered from Ground Zero. Highly highly recommend this... More

This museum was moving- a lovely tribute to all who were lost on that fateful day. The tributes to rescuers were beautiful, as well as the room that has picture of most of the victims. Buy your tickets online and save yourself the line for tickets.

Gives you insight in the days after 9/11 at ground zero with a lot of personal experiences and attributes on display, all gathered and commented by a word class photographer and story-teller. Touching.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
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 stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
