The National 9/11 Memorial & Museum New York City, NY 2.2 mi away
#1 of 329 Museums in New York City
Very tasteful and powerful museum with multimedia artifacts from 9/11 including real artifacts, tv/radio footage and photos make it one of the best memorial museums I've been too.
We always visit museums early and that is the sound advice I provide for any museum, but for this museum it is a necessity if you want easy access to the displays especially if you want to photograph them.

If you’re interested in learning something new but are tired of the intense crowds of the city’s larger and more prestigious museums we highly recommend checking out the KGB spy museum!
The gift shop is also worth mentioning because while small, it had some wonderfully quirky items alongside the usual fare of history museums.

Having visited lots of museums in NYC, I really appreciated how Brooklyn Museum engages with its patrons by letting them ask questions through an app, very cool idea and it worked really well.
The exterior rivals any of the other great museums in New York, and our whole experience was good, from our pre-visit drinks and apps in the restaurant, to the coat check, to the exhibit itself.

The museum itself is nicely run by a friendly staff, and it provides an interesting glimpse into narrow and confining life of a president who was bigger than all outdoors.
In addition to the house tour, you can also see a half-hour video about TR's boyhood and a small museum showing items, texts, and pictures about TR.
