Extremely well presented journey through the events of 9/11. It can take at least 2-3 hours to do it justice. Highly recommended. There is a very good App for your phone, so take your earphones and charge your battery. You don’t need the audio guide, although to be fair to them they don’t hard sell it and tell you about the App. The staff as you walk around are extremely knowledgable about the events. Make sure you ask them questions.

The most amazing memorial I’ve ever been to. It is sobering and informative. My students were in tears. They were so disappointed that they did not learn the full story in history class. They continued to discuss the exhibits days after we returned home.

I would only go if your strong, I got upset a lot as it’s very emotional, it is interesting but also makes you so angry what these horrible people done to NYC!

There is also a cafe upstairs, I’m not sure what it’s like though as we never went.

Moving tribute to 9/11. Inside was an amazing experience - heartfelt and informative. The lineups are a bit of a gong show - you line up for tickets, and then lineup for entry - but that’s NYC for you! Would definitely recommend a visit.

Harrowing, moving and exceptionally well established museum about everything surrounding that fateful day in 2001.

Allow plenty of time for it. We went 2 hours before closing but had to rush near the end and still missed out a lot. I recommend allowing 3 hours for your visit. There is so much there that will move you and interest you
