Overall rating

I got many questions answered to myself. Like why in the second building got killed twice more people then in the building that was attacked first. Why authorities didn’t let people go? Why people been asked to go back in place? During every fire alarm people asked to leave the building and not to use the elevator. The first building was on fire and in the second building people was asked to stay in place and wait. It was records of people phone calls confirming that. This is ridicules. All lives in the second building could be saved. At least many. Elevator worked and all stairs was opened for 20 min between two planes. A lots of detail that people can explore and understand materials provided.

New York: 9/11 Memorial and Museum Entry Ticket Reviewed by

Empecably done with the families of those who were lost in this tragedy in mind. Loved hearing the different families sharing their loss. Really put the names to the faces impacted me the most. Alot of work of putting together the artifacts for the collection. Made an impact on me as well. To really see the destruction of the day. Watching the events on TV doesn't compare to seeing the museum Up close an personal

Very moving. Beautifully curated. Lots of information - too much to absorb. Lots and lots and lots of memorabilia, too much info about the building of the twin towers so you get a bit overloaded before you can get past the tragic event and then absorb anything by the time you get to the "why?" - the part about Al Quaeda. I would have liked to study that, but I was overloaded by then.

the museum and memorial are well done, glad I went. Took my adult daughter who was in 5th grade when it was happening. Was very interesting to hear her perspective on what she remembered about that day, and the impact of her it has on her life and development.

Our guide Jim was very informative. Being into history for many years I found the guided tour very interesting. They did a fantastic job on the World Trade Center site. I can’t say enough about the time we shared on that tour. Thank you Jim
