  • Beyond the opinions that can have on the terirble made Dle 9/11, is a space and memory and homage very well achieved, feels the despair of the people who lived it, the sources give a feeling of tremendous emptiness. You can enter the museum on Tuesdays after 17 hrs, but must be booked online the day before or go on the same Tuesday but early at about 16.

  • give yourself at least 2 hours to visit everything. It is very well done and interesting for adults. Small children will not have much to distract them but the large areas to run about will challenge ...  more »

  • The 9/11 memorial was a heart stopper for me. The best part of our trip to NYC. Such a somber place you can feel the heavy hearts all over the museum. On a bright note the staff was so friendly and curious. It made our time there enjoyable as they would all greet you and smile. Thank you for taking care of such an important part of.our history!
  • Do not miss this landmark if you come to NYC. What more can be said about one of our nation's most sacred places in America, if not the planet. Amongst the tall buildings of lower Manhattan and Liberty Square, lie two peaceful waterfall pools that signify the memories and spirit of American lives taken too soon. There is a calm here, as if a God watches over it. The engraved names, marble perimeters, endless waterfalls, vast depths, quiet whispers, footsteps and echos of the pillars that once stood mighty to remind the world of US strength and dignity, keep guard on the lives that once were thriving our financial district impacting the globe. It a place to pray, to reflect, to explore museums and ponder. Whether alone, coupled or family, this coordinate on earth deserves our visits, our reflections and our respect. God Bless those lives. This is the place to be this spring and summer. It is highly recommended.
