Second visit here... the museum is finished and so is One World center. Its sad to see flags and roses at the memorials now but sweet that these people are still remembered. This is not a place for selfies!

There are not enough words to explain this museum. The museum is just so fantastic in retelling the 9/11 story and all the good and sad moments of this terrible event. Great area to think about the value of life and how fragile it can be.

We spent time a time the rememberance pools beforehand going into the museum. Use your credit card to purchase tickets at the machines out side of the museum, saves some time queueing to buy them. However, there’s is still a long wait to go through security and it was a busy sUnday when we visited. the tv monitors could have been placed higher up as people tended to stand in front of them and those at the back could not see what was being screened. No problem on a quiet day I expect. Take your time going around there I see so much to see and take in.

We visited the new museum for the first time since it’s completion.
You need to allow several hours to see it all.
There is a nice small cafe to have lunch also.
We combined the museum visit with our ride to the observation floor in the 1 world Tower adjacent to the museum site.
We recommend reservations for both.

We have looked forward to visiting the 9/11 memorial and museum since its inception. Our recent bus tour gave us the opportunity. It is truly an overwhelming experience. One that I will always remember.

Wear good walking shoes and come prepared to stand for long periods of time. We found the museum itself difficult to navigate. The flow was not clear and didn't seem intuitive. More than once we had to backtrack to see something that we were watching for but missed because of the layout. The map isn't helpful if you don't know where you are. It is a must see experience. Be prepared to spend 3-4 hours minimum.
