Great material, but should let it speak for itself

The material, including rare artifacts, mementos, and photographs from 9/11 were very interesting, but I felt that the focus was made too much on the photographer. Obviously, it's because of him we have these photos, but I felt like they were overselling it a bit. The material speaks for itself, and the audio descriptions were very informative. Overall, I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.

Definitely not satisfied

We went to the ground zero area, believing that these tickets were to get into the memorial and were NOT happy to find out that we didn't need to buy tickets to see the memorial. And by the time we arrived there, our appointment time had come and gone. I would like my money back considering we never even got into the museum.

This museum has the artsy NYC feel. You get to visit the " meat packing district," and see what an artist's loft space looks like, which is a nice break from all of the touristy activities. There is a short presentation and then a self guided audio tour. I learned a lot about the recovery effort. It was amazing to get to hold artifacts from the site(a lot of sad energy in the room), and to hear the personal stories. I felt it was a little pricey, but what isn't in that town? The customer service was excellent.

Cozy & Welcoming

I found it interested that no photos of the planes hitting the towers, nor any photos of the towers coming down were included. The tour guide stated the museum felt as if neither aided in the healing process. Instead, were photographs and stories demonstrating the fact that while two planes (bullets) went into the towers - only love came out.

Myself,husband and 2 adult daughters visited this Museum before we went to the 911 Memorial. It was very touching and emotional to see and hear about the events that happened following that tragic day. The photographer who was asked to capture these events on film (for no payment) did so with respect and honour. May we never forget the bravery of all people involved.

Even though the museum is in a small space, the artifacts, photography and stories held within the confined space blow your mind so much that you feel like you're in the largest space on Earth. Tissues are a must. Also to visit the Church where the rescue teams slept and recovered is very humbling.

Excellent well worth the visit

Excellent museum. Felt a little disappointed when I saw the size of the room but I spent 2 hours there and it still wasn't long enough. Being an international visitor it have me an insight into how Americans dealt with this tragedy. I would recommend this visit to anyone you will not be disappointed!
