We went as a group of twelve, including a couple of children. It was a moment of mourning, but i found a lot of people chatting away to glory. How disrespectful can one get in a tragedy memorial? Honestly wouldn't mind giving them a piece of my mind only if they met me outside the venue. The tribute was so beautiful, if only people weren't around to make a mess of it. Shameful.
I was hesitant, but my wife strongly believed we should pay respects to the memorial museum atleast once on our trip. Thought it would be a dampner but I'm glad we went. it was an eye-opening experience. Happy we found a way to skip the line via Headout. There's a lot of rush during the weekends so it is recommended you opt for the same.
Booked my tickets last minute via Headout after learning about the crowd that visits the memorial often. It was a good idea after all. Dont miss out on visiting this beautiful tribute. We were appalled at the number of people who were a part of this... you just can't seem to understand the enormity of the situation until you're actually standing inside the memorial
I find most people feeling sad about the memorial, but I can't help but marvel at the beauty of the tribute. As an American citizen, i've been there so many times. It keeps you feeling positive, doesn't bring you down at all. My heart goes out to every person and their family who were a part of this tragic event. May they rest in peace.
Although i'm not an American citizen, the 9/11 tragedy shook me as a human being. i could only feel better after i finally paid my respects to those who lost their lives that day. Truly heartbreaking! However you must definitely visit the memorial as they've done it up quite beautifully. Great job.
Visited with my nephew and niece who are school kids just to let them have a look at tragedy and form their opinions. I was hoping its not too graphic but was surprised to see it so wonderfully explained. The exhibits were made in a way you could understand every word. I recommend a trip to the Memorial if you're visiting New York.
You don't face the intensity of the tragedy until you're standing in front of a wall full of those who lost their lives on that fateful day. My heart goes out to the families of these brave people. Everyone should visit the Memorial to pay respect to these departed souls. Heartwarming gesture.
I honestly didn't want to go through the pain of visiting the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, as i'm not someone who could make through without breaking down. However, on entering we realized that it is more than just a wall full of deceased people. You're left feeling hopeful and positive. Nevertheless, may peace be bestowed to those who lost their lives that day.
I couldn't go through this as I've lost a dear one during the tragedy. It is almost impossible to cope with the loss entirely, and going through the tribute was quite heartbreaking for me. While it couldn't have been done up better, i ended up exiting it quicker as it was saddening to walk through the memorial by myself.
You can't seem to shake off the eerie feeling while walking through the exhibits. Sure, they were set up wonderfully but you're forced to think about all the unpleasantness that happened during the mass tragedy. I'm sorry, but as a sensitive person i couldn't walk through the entire museum without breaking down. Slightly embarrassed but more or less shocked at the kind of tragedy that shook the entire world.
I took a bunch of kids from the high school I teach at. I wanted them to get a sense of what transpired on the day of 9/11. I bought the tickets online and pre-booked the slot so we could avoid waiting as I had to get them back in time for school closing time.
It’s just not for those who have been through the tragedy. My best friend’s children were a part of the tragedy and having been there for her that day it seems terrible to go through that pain again. Don’t visit if you were a part of the tragedy.
Easy booking of tickets. Faced no hassles.
Excellent tribute for those fallen in the tragedy.
do this great #1 didn't have to stand in 30 degree to buy tickets
I had only read about it and seen it on TV. This was entirely something else! Must-visit for everyone who wants to understand American History.
I had been avoiding the museum for a long time because I didn’t think I would cope with it. However, it was a last minute decision that my boyfriend and I took to visit the place. We booked the tickets and went to visit the next day. Surprisingly it left us positive and looking forward to the future. We decided to volunteer with city organizations more often after this visit.
The 9/11 tragedy is something we shouldn’t forget as Americans. I took my grandkids who were too young when it happened but can now understand the emotional burden of the event on the American psyche.
Touching. It’s a patriotic duty to go there once in your lifetime.
Very interesting but moving experience
