Great museum! Leave yourself three to 4 hours in the museum. It's pretty big. Lots of interesting exhibits to take in. Take the time to listen to the recordings.

I couldnt wait to go to the 9/11 memorial and museum and I was not dissappointed. The whole place has been put together so thoughtfully and with the utmost care to detail and respect to the delicate content of its exhibitions. The memorial fountains are so beautiful and thought provoking and the museum is full of incredible artefacts and human story. It doesn't feel too heavy or artificial. There is a real authenticity to the place. I loved it so much,

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.
