Visiting these two memorials was really emotional and Mesmerizing. They are really beautiful, and a symbol of what happened that day and a way for us to pay respects to those who gave their life. Definitely worth checking out at least once.

My wife and I were glad to have chosen the before-hours private tour of the 9/11 museum. It's not terribly expensive, and well worth the quiet space afforded for processing the emotional experience.

We have wanted to visit and pay our respects but this week was the first opportunity. It is well worth getting up early & the few extra dollars.

I rated this tour highly because of what it represents: A peaceful place for reflection of a horrific event. The two pools with the quiet rippling waters make you feel that you're not in Manhattan along with the abundance of trees surrounding the pools. Unfortunately,...More
