“Ground Zero Museum Teaser”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

Hi,

Although very difficult to find, it was really interesting to see the events in a timeline and also read people's personal experiences! Since we from Namibia it was all a bit "far" and difficult to relate to, but visiting this really brought the fear and sadness out. Most important it showed me the spirit of the American people to not just lie down and be beaten but stand together and fight, I love that in the Americans

“Intimate and Moving”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

A small studio, an inventory of pictures and memorabilia, and a recorded passage through the weeks and months after the 2001 terrorist attacks. This is an essential visit to a pivotal marker in our country's history. Highly recommended.

“Touching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

A must see for all who go to Ground Zero. I don't think anyone who goes into the Museum will walk out the same. Your feelings are very deep and strong.
