This is one of the more moving memorials I’ve been to. In fact maybe the most. I was pretty young on 9-11 and don’t know anyone who died personally, but this is an extremely powerful place. I’m not really a spiritual person in the traditional sense either, but this is sacred ground. I found the pools to be incredible. You couldn’t quite look over far enough to see the bottoms as if they flowed downwards on forever. In some senses they do I guess.
Beautiful and emotional at the same time. This museum was well thought out and constructed. I really enjoyed walking through and seeing the artifacts and history surrounding the World Trade Center buildings. They did a good job telling stories about each plane and the timeline of the event which occurred that day. I would recommend this to anyone visiting New York. Get the city pass so you can skip lines throughout your day.

I was in DC and NYC for six days as a tourist and visited several places. This was easily the most powerful place of my trip, quite possible of my life. It's very well organized and invokes a wide range of emotions. The memorials and narratives were fascinating. We had only 90 minutes before we had to leave and I was not able to see everything. I'd recommend at least 2-3 hours set aside for this memorial. Worth the price of admission. I'd like to go back again someday.
Awesome memorial! We came down here just after touring One World Trade. It was an overcast day but that made for better views. We were there at 11:30 AM and the crowds weren’t all that bad. I would go a little earlier of I could do it again. Such an incredible memorial and it’s amazing to see how much care was put into memorializing where the twin towers used to stand. I have not been to the site since shortly after 9/11 and it’s unbelievable to see the area now. So glad we came!
The museum is an amazing and heavy experience. It is huge on the inside with many different types of exhibits. It is well maintained. Please do not let your children touch the pieces. It’s disrespectful to slow them to do that. The staff is very helpful. The whole site is just gorgeous and very well built. Lines move quickly.
