“Not worth the money”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you've read the newspapers and watched the news over the past decade, there's nothing new here. I don't know what I expected, but it was more than you get. Don't bother.

“Interesting exhibit”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

The Cell Learning Lab is well worth a visit. Plan about 45 minutes to see the entire exhibit. The layout and visuals are well done.

“Awesome.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

As a student of terrorism, this was an awesome place to visit. This facility displayed domestic and international terrorism since the 20th century. There is also a senerio one can experience. Children may not find this place amusing.

“Informative-No cameras allowed :(”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

They had some very interesting displays. A piece of the World Trade Center. Some edited film from that day...I say edited because they took out all the people jumping from the burning building. Which was odd because they had other displays that were much more graphic. In fact, I had to skip a part of the tour because the movie was probably a little more than I can handle. I would have liked to have taken some pictures just from a historical standpoint. I left with a bit more knowledge on terrorism. Yet it left me with a feeling that these terrorists one step ahead of what is being done to stop them. (They make cartoons for babies indoctrinating them with their beliefs as an infant...scary.)

“Disturbing”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Stumbled into this museum on a bright sunny day...and I have to say, it pretty much ruined my day. It was disturbing, and not in a good way...seems like the whole point of many of the exhibits was to frighten you into never setting foot in a public place again. I'm all for contemplative, thoughtful discussion of this topic, but the scare tactics at the Cell were over the top.
