  • Take your time with this museum. You will not regret it. Its on the larger side so I recommend blocking out some time for this museum. I loved hearing peoples accounts of what happened and how beautiful and well thought out the exhibits are. Highly recommend if you are visiting NYC!
  • Really well done. I especially enjoyed watching the interviews of survivors. Very interesting stories. You see how emotional it is for them to tell their story. I also liked the many artifacts there were. Clothes, pictures, tools and more. Definitely a good place to visit.
