We were confused about 9/11 Tribute centre and The Memorial Museum. We visited both,but I found the guided tour by Mary, a local and the curator of the Tribute Centre, conveyed the feelings of someone who witnessed the mayhem, to be most informative, very moving and from the heart. She explained many of the external features of the area and... More

We started off by doing the self-guided tour of the small, but comprehensive and poignant Tribute Center museum. We were fortunate enough to be there at the time a volunteer 9/11 survivor gave a talk on her experience on that fateful day. So moving - she made it out from the 44th flr in the N tower while firefighters going... More

Spent a sunny November morning with my 13 year old daughter on this tour. Chris was an exceptional tour guide whose story made the whole experience that much more real. Everyone should take this tour!

We visited instead of the museum which had long queues on a bitingly cold and snowy day and are glad we did. The exhibits are individual and thought provoking and the comments from relatives, survivors and visitors are life enhancing. The walking tour was also well worth it and well done.

Thank you Chris and Gail for the very moving stories you shared with us. A far more personal experience than the adjacent museum and if you have to decide between the two, DO THIS ONE. We will never forget.

this was a very moving and informative tour. The gallery is small but very emotional. Seeing the pictures of the victims really made it so much more real, even after all this time. The guide was great and his story of his experience during 9-11 made this tour so much more real. Go while there are still people who experienced... More

Interesting to hear the stories of others and who it affected. Very emotional place. Not a big place but plenty to see and keep you occupied.

You are led on this tour by two volunteers- a survivor and someone who has lost a family member. This adds the personal touch to the tour and you are hearing it from the horses mouth, not from someone who may have not even been in New York during the attack. The tour guides we had were inspirational and the... More

This is a smaller more intimate centre of remembrance of the event. Luckily we arrived late in the day and had a clear walk through, chilling ,sad,confused by human behaviour on one side and amazing courage by others. Must visit if one is trying to piece together this small part of recent history - but would say that the main... More
