Owner description: The 9/11 Tribute Museum is a project of the September 11th Families’ Association which brings together those who want to learn about 9/11 with those who experienced it. The 9/11 Tribute Museum invites visitors to share personal stories of the 9/11 community — family members who lost loved ones, survivors, first responders and rescue workers, civilian volunteers, and community residents whose healing is a testament to the perseverance of the human spirit. We provide an understanding of the loss and impact of 9/11 while inspiring the power of resilience and recovery.

This was my favorite thing we did in in new york and on independance day. A talk and tour by a lady who huband passed in trade tower 1. It was so emotional and i hold the lady with the greatest regard and im humle to her for sharing her and her families experiance. It was jut amazing, i only wish i hadnt be crying so hard and could remember her name!. fantastic tour worth every penny. If your reading this, i found your huband's name and did what you asked everytime i think about my few hours with you i get shiver and goose bumps

We had not booked tickets for the 9/11 Museum and decided to visit the 9/11 Tribute Center. We found the videos very informative and the displays very personal and moving. Visiting the Tribute Center made the events of 9/11 more real for all of us. Words cannot express the sympathy that we feel for the victims of 9/11 and their families.

This should never be confused with the 911 Museum. It is an excuse to sell souvenirs. There are two very small floors, each with a souvenir stand. The families should be ashamed this is still opened. There is no true history here. I hate to sound cruel about it, but it really is just pictures of people who passed that day, some missing posters and souvenir stands. Nothing more. It is an excuse to make money, not keep any memories alive.

A really great tribute which is very emotional and definitely worth the visit with the New York pass. Staff friendly and helpful.
If you want more info etc then you need to head to the museum.

This little museum has a small number of artifacts and pictures. The most moving part is a room full of pictures. Here you can grasp the loss of life, which is hard to see with only a number, but becomes very clear here. The best thing is the tour of the memorial, which starts in the tribute center, and is led by relatives or survivors. Mine was led by two survivors. One was a fireman who lost his entire squad that day. He survived because he was on vacation. He saw it happen from a distance and tried to get there in time, but was too late struggling against the crowd who of course went the other way. The other guy was on the 65th floor of the first tower that was hit, and his first-hand description of how things unfolded was very moving and interesting.
