Excellent lay out

Good for realising what happened as it did so. How very not good for non wheel chair disabled, no benches to sit and rest on, as you traversed the exhibits.

Ties it all together

Great and solemn event to visit and understand the whole situation that day. Our four kids, who were all born after 9/11, said it was their favorite thing to do in NYC becaue it helped explain the attacks to them so they could understand.

Great information, presentation and use of space was not thought out for crowds

We arrived early to tour this museum. Crowds grew, as expected. mid day. This is a large spread out facility, but the area that had the most informative and interesting information as to before, during, and after events, was confined into a small enclosed area...More
