What an amazing and emotional experience. The pools are beautifully done and are a wonderful tribute to those who lost their lives on 9/11. The museum was very well done and included many items and details leading up to and including 9/11 as well as the aftermath. The experience is definitely emotional and at times difficult, but seeing the memorial and the museum should be at the top of every NYC visitor's list.

A must-see site!

We hesitated about spending time for this, but it turned out to be a highlight of our New York visit. Very well put together with cool use of building remains. Touching videos and recordings, memorabilia,and sequence of events. Highly recommend going, but plan on at least two hours.

This was my first visit to New York and I felt it was important to pay my respects to all those affected by the atrocity. I didn't visit the museum but found simply being at the memorial a moving experience.
