My wife takes all of our grandchildren to NYC when they are 9 years old. This was so so moving to see these photos. My wife had seen this and been lectured by the photographer and she was so correct in her assessment of the meaning of this museum workshop. Yes we are all so full of hope after this. God Bless America!!!

Ridiculous

This is a scam in my view that was created to just make money - there is no museum - it is a small room, largely filled with pictures that you have already seen if you watch the news. Wait for the real memorial to open on site and forget this ripoff and nonesense.

expensive and without interest

the minimum of honesty would be to prevent that the “museum” is summarized in one room…

It was an interesting place to visit. It's a lot of pictures. For fast every picture or thing, you can hear a story.

Tour "guides" detract from exhibit

9/11 is an extremely touchy subject, and any exploration of it should be a somber affair. I found that the tour "guides" -- and I use the term loosely, because they didn't really "guide" anything so much as talk to us about the photographer / proprietor -- were incredibly melodramatic and actually took away from the overall experience. The artifacts on display are quite interesting. Each artifact has with it a narrated description or story, provided over personal headset when you key in the artifact's assigned number. Some of these narrations were very interesting, descriptive, and well-designed. Others were overly dramatic or almost commercial in nature. Still others were so short as to be pointless, added only to say that there was a narration with the item, such as, "this is a photo of a fireman." In all: I wasn't so disappointed as to ask for my money back. However, it felt to me like the museum was put together as a money-making proposition for the proprietor, *not* as a reflection and tribute to one of the most terrible events in modern memory. That disappointed me. If you can ignore the tour-guides, and get past the commercialized feel of some of this, the museum isn't a bad way to spend a few hours; however, I wish we had gone to the actual 9/11 memorial at the former World Trade Center instead.

This museum is an absolute must-see!!

We visited the museum last week with our 10-year old son, and we all found it an absolutely unforgettable experience. We had prepared our son for what he was going to see, and that is advisable when bringing kids that age. He took a lot of the impressions in and has talked a lot about the visit since we were there - it for sure made an impression on him as well. The museum deals with 9/11 in a very respectful manner without trying to hide what actually happened and what impact it had especially on the families directly involved, but also on the rest of the world. We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Suson in person towards the end of the visit, and that completed the experience. I would highly recommend everyone visiting New York to also visit this museum - we spent a week in NYC and this museum was by far the 'attraction' that created the biggest impression. GO AND SEE IT!!
