Intimate and Informative

Great experience for the teens and up. Like the intimate setting. Recommend having more than one bathroom and a cleaning person regularly.

So well worth the time and money

I stumbled on this Museum online and am so glad we went there. I have visited the 911 sight twice before. The displays and photos in this museum made it all so real and showed the horrendous human loss and the horrible devestation of this evil act. It also showed the bravery of all the men and women who selflessly risk their lives every day to keep us safe and protect our freedoms. This museum is well worth the time and money. It was some of the smallest things that were so meaningful and these displays were very well thought out and very well staged. God Bless America!!

Must See in NYC

Incredible. This is a must see attraction if you're visiting NYC. Don't let the size of the museum fool you, you'll need all 2 hours to absorb everything.

Excellent photography

The many photographs give you a sense of what the recovery process entailed during the aftermath of 9/11. Particularly poignant were the photos of the retired firemen who had lost their sons in the tragedy.

meaningful and close-up activity

We had traveled from the West Coast and felt that we got a real feeling for what NY had gone through on 9/11. It was tastefully done with great respect for those who were closely touched by this event, yet informative enough and thoughtfully done so many of our questions were answered. It put the tragedy and loss to so many in human terms and was the most meaningful activity we did on our visit to NYC.

It was O.K Don't know that I would visit again

It was O.K . The neighborhood didn't seem like the best place to be, even the cab driver said are you sure this is the right address?, but once we were greeted at the door by a nice looking young lady, I felt better. I expected the museum to be bigger than it was, and was a bit disappointed, because there were more pictures than items displayed. We took my grandson with us (11yrs old) I think he enjoyed it, because he liked the companion? (electronic listening devise) and he could go at his own pace and view what he wanted. The tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable, but I thought the souvenirs were a bit pricey. $6.00 for a postcard. It was nice to visit once, but I don't think I will go back.

Lots of color for a smaller space

Very well organized w/ photos and the audio narratives for context. The artifacts themselves are the most unique and impacting. Unlike any other sort of museum interaction.

Some interesting stuff, but overall disappointing
Fri, Jul 30, 10   1:00 PM troyandtodd Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The musuem is a single small room filled with pictures and few display items from ground zero. The tour begins with a very brief introduction by a guide, then a short movie. After that, the entire time is spent with an audio headset where you enter the number of the picture on the wall that you want to hear about. A brief audio file is then played that tells something about that picture. Some of it is interesting, but it gets tiring just listening to taped recordings. There is no live human interaction. In addition, many of the most interesting facts are covered in the short movie, then repeated when you enter the number for the photo displayed on the wall. Definitely not worth the ticket price.

Small, but Powerful
Fri, Sep 11, 09   1:00 PM trottj Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
This was one of the most powerful presentations I have seen in a long time. Not only because the subject matter evokes emotions, but how the presentation was made, the individual displays, the small venue, the short descriptions of each picture all lent to providing a moving memorial to those who were so closely affected by this tragic event.. Thank you.
