From an artistic and historic point of view it is Incredibly well done. It couldn’t have been done better.

It takes quite a while to see everything but it can be done and is well worth it. It is draining though. Lots of emotions came up for us.

Extremely well presented journey through the events of 9/11. It can take at least 2-3 hours to do it justice. Highly recommended. There is a very good App for your phone, so take your earphones and charge your battery. You don’t need the audio guide, although to be fair to them they don’t hard sell it and tell you about the App. The staff as you walk around are extremely knowledgable about the events. Make sure you ask them questions.

The most amazing memorial I’ve ever been to. It is sobering and informative. My students were in tears. They were so disappointed that they did not learn the full story in history class. They continued to discuss the exhibits days after we returned home.

I would only go if your strong, I got upset a lot as it’s very emotional, it is interesting but also makes you so angry what these horrible people done to NYC!

There is also a cafe upstairs, I’m not sure what it’s like though as we never went.
