The 9/11 Memorial & Museum will affect each person differently. It's a piece of history and is in the actual place where all our lives changed forever. The Memorial is a somber, peaceful and beautiful tribute and remembrance of the souls lost that day. It also encompasses those workers and survivors who have lost their lives since 9/11 due to health issues. The twin reflecting pools and the engraved names of every person who died is very powerful. Just walking by and paying quiet respects is something one should do if in the area
The 9/11 Museum captures physical artifacts and photos and offers interactive elements to share interesting facts of this horrific event. Spend as little or as much time as you like but don't come until you are ready as it can be a very emotional experience depending on how you were impacted. It's a lot to view and take it in. For younger people this is history they are learning about; for those who lived during it, it's very sombering.

My birthday is 9/11, I'm Dutch and living in the Netherlands, so the events that took place that day in 2001 affected me personally, as my birthday would never be the same again ever since. I have not lost anybody close to me in the attacks, so that it affected my birthday is nothing compared to the people that have lost their loved ones in the attacks of 9/11. It's very impressive to see the artifacts that were kept from that day, it was also very emotional and I had to cry in the museum as it's very intense to see the things for real instead of on the news or in a documentary. If you want to pay your respect, and if you want to see that what most of you saw on tv actually happened, it was not a movie, although it felt like that seeing this from a distance, to see the important pieces that make it all very real, visit the 9/11 museum. If you have younger (not too young) kids that were too young or not born, visit with them, to let them see what happened that day and that we should never forget what happened and never want to see anything like this happen again, take them there. It's very intense, but something that is recent history, that should never be repeated. If you are in New York, go and visit the museum, it's a must do. Then also visit the memorial outside to remember and never forget all the people that were affected by this awful event.

Walking thru the 911 area, seeing the new buldings, the special tree plantings, the memorial pools, the names engraved in stone around the pools was an awesome and emotional thing. We did not have time to visit the museum, but were told it was also a worthy experience and to plan on 4 hours rhere.
