Amazing place to visit, a reality check of life when you see inside the museum. Felt nothing but admiration & love to all of those who lost their lives or missing.

This museum is a special place to go to get the real feel of what the first responders went through after 9/11. A very emotional experience to visit here.

Tranquil and eerie, beautifully done. No one should forget the horrors of 911 and America has made sure no one will. Very tactful the way they've done it. If it doesn't bring a tear to your eye your not human.

It's sad to see this place but people are remembered who gave their lives. I would highly recommend people to visit this place. It was good to show our children the place and share what happened. Will never forget it.

This place is a touching tribute to those who lost their lives there. We did the audio tour(headphones) for $7 a person. I found it to be confusing because it wasn't exactly in order and took some time to find the place you wanted it...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

I think it is free to enter, but they ask for a donation to the welfare fund.
