This museum is probably very overlooked but a visit is well worth your time. The photographer who created this exhibit was actually in the museum when we visited and was very personable and informative. Be aware it is on 14th street, in the meat packing district, not down near the 9/11 memorial museum.

This little museum has it all. I highly recommend taking the time to come to this place. The way it is set up, is truly beautiful. You get a headset and remote and you can walk around at your own pace. You also get to hold a piece of the steel and glass from the actual WTC. Such an amazing... More

NOT a "giggle place"- many of those who come here wish a reminder of 911, and not as just buying tourist stuff... the content and atmosphere is appropriate and quietly respectful.

Words cannot express how moving the museum, presentation and memorabilia were at the Museum. This is a must see museum. Gary has captured the emotions, the memorable pieces of history. It's incredibly powerful. The recordings accommodated our friends from Italy. So thoughtful. Remember where you were when the first plane hit?

We visited the museum and it was one of the highlights of our recent stay in NY. Although, the subject is terribly sad - it has been set out well and there are so many stories and even items found at ground zero which are on display. I would recommend everyone should take time to go and see.

Lovely day, no clouds in the sky. One of the most memorable places we visited. The reflection pool is genius. Next time, we must go to the museum.

Worth the time and the price for most ages! Even in a summer day the place was busy, but not packed.

This museum is as surprising as it is affecting. It's not near Ground Zero and it's tricky to find, but it is the perfect way to both learn about the terrible events of 9/11 and to pay your respects. Based on the images of the photographer appointed by the FDNY, this is a small museum that packs a big punch.... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
