This was one of the most emotional experiences I’ve had while traveling. I loved this museum and I think everyone should experience it at some point. It brings you back to that day and to those who were alive to witness the horror of that day, it sort of brings a bit of closure. I was very young when this happened but I remember that day better than my own wedding day. They laid out the museum really well and while I cried quite a bit, I really enjoyed our time there. I would suggest getting the audio tour. We saw people walking around with tour groups, but they had to stay so quiet and you have to wear a headset with them anyway, I preferred just using the audio guide.

This is a very intense memorial. The fountains are beautiful and the museum is very well put together to remember the lives lost on this terrible day.If you're bringing kids here, make sure to warn them before entering as some of the exhibits are very hard to see. There's one exhibit in here with the voicemails of those who passed it's very hard to endure. But if you've never seen this, it's worth the trip downtown to remember those who've fallen.

I know many Newyorkers who won't visit here as it is still too raw, but it is a beautiful and moving museum for those who want to learn more about what happened that day. Take your time to explore and soak it all in. It is a very emotional place and I found it hard to keep my composure several times. Make sure you book as it can sell out during peak times.

So beautiful. The area where they engraved all of the names of the people who died that day was breathtaking. I was watching the engravers do each little letter so precise and perfect. Great experience

A truly powerful and sobering memorial of the events from September 11, 2001. Our family lost a dear friend in that tragic event.

This museum was created to help us remember those whom have been taken during this awful tragedy. It does just that and it provides a beautiful memorial right in front of the One Worlds trade center.

Tons of security! Easy to find, the Memorial is free. You must check the weather before.

Beautiful memorial, does a great job of representing the towers and respecting those who died. The new museum should be opening soon- I want to go see it!

Memorial area for people who lost their lives during September 11. Park officer places a stalk of flower on the person's tablet whose birthday happen to be on that day. There is also the tree of life nearby with 2 security guards.

The Twin Towers use to rise above the NYC skyline, September 11 forever changed that. The Freedom Tower stands for the height and on the ground is the beautiful memorial that spans the circumference of the tower. The depth of the waterfall reflects the stories deep also affected. It is a sober place, people reading the names of those lives lost, etched in marble. It is definitely a wonderful place to visit. Trade Center One is already built and Tower Two half way up. They will not be the height of the original towers but I am glad to see them rebuilt. The nearby firehouse 10 is also dedicated as a memorial to the Firefighters and the station first on scene. A beautiful bronzed wall is picturesque of that day. Much is free to the public, however there is a memorial that costs a fee to go inside. I truly recommend for everyone to take the time to visit this memorial.

Beautiful waterfall pools replace the fallen towers. Names etched in the borders if all the lives lost. There was one tree that survived the attacks, and they lovingly erected a fence around it.

The tallest building on the right ... This memorial is jaw-dropping and emotionally stunning. Unfortunately, not everyone is respectful .... However, the scale and the simplicity juxtapose perfectly to provide an experience you won't soon forget. Please note: this review does not include the museum .

They did a great job with the 9/11 memorial. It is a must see when you travel to NY. The reflecting pools are breath taking and seeing the roses by people's names for their birthdays is heartwarming. It's yet a somber experience but you can't miss if while you are there. Should be #1 on your list.
