Wanted o visit the site & the freedom tower found it very beautiful & liked hoe they put a white rose on the persons name when it is their birthday. I tried to imagine it that day. Liked how they put what fire station etc they came from. It's a very moving tribute to a terrible tragedy. Take your camera. Well worth a visit

This is a must for anyone who goes to New York however be prepared to be moved while here. You could spend hours looking around the museum but it does take you back to that day and I felt rather drained after I left. The main exhibition is powerful but there is another exhibit inside the main one which takes you through everything minute by minute which lets you see artefacts from different areas people and you can here communications from air traffic control, firefighters and so one taking you right to the moment.

Poignant display which evokes a lot of emotions among visitors. But can get repetitive after a while with the same videos played at different spots.

We took the guided tour and our guide was very respectful of the location and knowledgable. For overseas visitors I would say the personal guided tour was essential.
The whole area has an aura and a solemnity that is hard to put in words. Due to personal reasons I was home on 9/11 and watched the whole incident live.
The feeling of horror is captured in the exhibition, but so is the human spirit of survival and selflessness which is ultimately uplifting and brings dignity to the site.
I am so glad we visited and will have an enduring memory.

911 is one of those days where everyone remembers where they were and this Memorial and Museum give you a very detailed view of exactly what happened that day. It is very well done but very emotional as you see the faces of all of those who lost their lives that day.
