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
This is the second time at the museum and this time I had booked the tickets through the app. I had booked it for friends visiting from Sydney and we had no hassles in entering or waiting in line.
It was an eerie experience because your mind just goes to all the things you were doing back on that day! It’s a huge museum and if you are like me you will take your time to go through each of the exhibits.
Waste of time
Well maintained museum and lot of thought put in the exhibits.
We booked the skip the line tickets and selected our time slot while booking. So the logistics were all set out, what we were unprepared for is the emotional assault! I had a school mate who lost his life in the tragedy and imagining him in that horror was difficult. But, it made me feel grateful and hopeful for the future.
I had heard mixed reviews of the 9/11 memorial from my friends. And now having been there I get it! It’s a well thought out museum and can really evoke a sense of the day when it all happened. Worth a visit when in NY!
walked straight in... very easy.
A must see for first time visitors to NY
A very difficult experience for me as I am a resident New Yorker and was in NY when 9/11 happened. Didn't really want to visit this memorial but one my friends highly recommended that I come here and so I did. Not a single regret because this was an eye opening experience for me. This memorial is beautifully made and honors those who lost their lives in that horrible tragedy.
A very emotional experience for my family and me, especially because my husband is in the army :(
