We visited Ground Zero in 2004 and 2008, it was great to see the rebuilding in 2012. It was important the original Ground Zero site in no being build on. The museum was great and very sensitive. To get the free tickets you to get them about 500 metres from the museum.

Being from Amsterdam, the only small Museum I have ever been in was the Anne Frank House, which was tiny but moving. We came to this Museum after reading the reviews and were expecting to possibly be let down but we were not. It IS tiny, but well organized by friendly staff. The Museum itself has amazing images that we had not seen before, with accompanying audio tour units that tell the story behind the images. Picking up 9-11 artifacts was very special, made us feel a part of the experience more. Cannot recommend this "Big Little Museum" enough. We went before going to the 9-11 Memorial and glad we did, gave us a fuller picture of 9-11. Don't miss this museum.
