It was worth paying to go into the museum and get on one of the tours. The place is so well thought out and respectful of the tragedy that happened there on 9/11.

was not opened on our visit in 2013 so had not wanted to miss on our return in 2018 and glad we didn't. Wonderful in every aspect and worthy of any visitor to the area. I recommend you go.

Some interesting photos and artefacts but I honestly don’t think this deserves the many 5star ratings it has received. Also visited ground zero museum and did a tour which was far more impressive and possibly a little less subjective.

I was here last January. It was freezing and we had to wait a long while to get into themuseum. Once inside, its great to see and remember the events of 9/11. A little too crowded, but a solid recommendation

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
