    Give yourself at least three hours for this, it is an amazing museum and worth reading the details of the event. They have tissue paper inside each auditorium just in case if you feel emotional..

    The museum is a must visit attraction in NYC. It takes you back to 9/11/2001 with a lot of details and stories told by witnesses who lived this tragedy.

    This is a very emotional place, be prepared for lots of intense emotions. The museum takes you through the entire day and mixes displays with media and artifacts in an elegant way.

    An overwhelming remembrance of the tragedy that happened, and a celebration of the courage that New Yorkers had coming together to help and support their own. Set aside at least 3 hours to go through.

    Amazing 21st-Cent museum, made more poignant via interactive features, video, audio & salvaged every day items. Massive space - a sepulchre. Visit. Never Forget.

    The Museum is respectfully awesome. Plan for at least 2 1/2 hours. Must purchase tickets prior to going. Be sure to arrive at the museum 10-15 minutes PRIOR to your entry time.

    Open up your schedule when you plan to come (because you need to). You'll want to spend at LEAST 2.5 hours here to just take everything in. This place is deceivingly ENORMOUS.

    Beautiful place and a very touching exhibition inside the 9/11 museum. Don't miss "on the day, before and after" exhibition - we spent about 3 hours there.

    A very impressing place. Prior online booking allows you to pass the long queue. Don't be lured by bracelet offered for donation: near the exit there's a visitor center with lots of merchandise.

    Beautifully done and powerful memorial to remember the victims who perished in 911 WTO tragedy. Gone are the 2 square towers, in its place 2 hollow square holes with water falling infinitely.

    Do not rush through this. It will take an hour, two, maybe more for the museum. There is a lot of impact. Be ready for it. Kids should understand and be ready to take some time to explain.

    Do yourself a favor and don't just walk up to the memorial and take a picture. Take a guided tour or something to allow yourself to feel. If you don't want to honor lives lost, stick to Times Square.

    My hotel room overlooks the 9/11 memorial. I worked in the Trade Center years ago and finally got up the courage to walk over. It's wonderful and everyone should visit it to remember and honor.

    Hard to describe the feeling you have when you see the sheer scale of the two great, black pits before you, that were once the footprint of the WTC towers.

    The Memorial consists of two waterfalls created in the former foundations of the twin towers. The waterfall is surrounded by 400 trees. Design selected from over 5000 proposals. More info in our blog. Read more

    A pair of structural tridents from the base of the original 1 WTC tower are visible through the museum's glass atrium, by the north pool. The pools -- epic in scale and graceful especially after dusk.

    So glad they didn't simply rebuild over the site. Kids and us were both amazed. Very surreal feeling to stand there knowing what happened there. Very beautiful and moving memorial.

    It's a sad reminder of what happened on this day but also proof of the strength of New York. Honor those who lost their lives and visit to pay your respects. A must do in Manhattan.

    This memorial was incredible. With lots of artefacts and sound recordings from the day. I had hoped for a more positive ending to the exhibition - but it stays on the tragedy throughout.

    Go to the web site 911memorial.org and request a pass before you go to the memorial site. That way you are guaranteed entry to the site. If it's busy, you won't be able to go in. It's free to enter.

    An extremely moving (and crowded) museum. Buy your tickets online beforehand and don't be afraid to spend as long as you need inside--I recommend at least 3 hours.

    An incredibly moving tribute to the men and women from that day. Bring tissues for the walk through exhibit, and pay the extra cash for the guided tour of the museum. Ask for Judith.

    Snap a picture of a few names around the endless pool and pay tribute by finding their name and picture in the In Memorandum exhibit in the museum and send their picture to the inner chamber.

    A tribute of remembrance and honor. Occupying eight of the 16 acres at the World Trade Center, the 9/11 Memorial and Museum are tributes to the past and a place of hope for the future.

    Make a timed reservation online. The entrance is across from the W hotel. Very orderly entry process. Go in the evening. The lights are beautiful and the memorial seems even more serene.
