Everyone should visit this Museum, like everyone should visit the Holocaust Museums to see the pain and suffering man can deliver upon his fellow man. Tears and more tears fell as we walked around this tribute to the fallen and the heroics of others. The detailing is perfect and although sad it is a credit to those involved in its... More

Many of us (of a certain age) know about the events that took place on 9/11. This museum, however, gives you an even closer, more intimate look at the events and efforts of uniformed personnel after the day. It's extremely emotional and powerful but the museum handles it delicately and respectfully. I have been twice now and intend always recommend... More

This museum is an incredibly special experience. I brought my 15 year old son to this museum last week, who was a tiny baby when 9/11/01 changed New York and so many lives. He normally doesn't love museums or tours, but this one is a different story. When you entire the small space, you realize this is not any ordinary... More

Our grandchildren ages 11 and 14 enjoyed so much and learned so much. A must for children over the age of 10. Tells of a horror that young people need to know about in a way that is not frightening, but enlightening. We saw our grandchildren feel the experience and come away with an understanding of 9-11. It provides insight... More

There was so much to see in this museum. Be sure and give yourself time to see everything. We didn't think the short feature film was worth the wait but all else was interesting.

A great museum to pay your respects to those lost in such tragic events and too celebrate the lives of those taken from us.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
