It was cancelled and we are still waiting to hear on how we get our money refunded. I’m certain the experience would have been amazing had we been able to go. This review is solely based on the fact that we paid for something that we did not get to do.
The entrance to the venue was snagless, straight through without a wait. Although expect airport style security checks as you enter the building. The disappointment was with the audio tour. I expected it to be included but this was only through an app, so the audio equipment was needed to be hired at $8 per person. The exhibits were many and the whole tour was a sobering experience, as expected. You need to see it to believe it, just like watching the original event!
I was really impressed and moved by the museum. The security check went smooth and efficient.
The young ladies outside the entrance at the cattle walk could be a little more welcoming. They were almost rude. We are customers after all.
I used the coat check and they were great even helping me with directions to battery park so we could catch a boat to Ellis island.
I was upset that we were not able to return after our boat trip. We unfortunately didn’t have enough time to finish the tour. The trip advisor info said 2 hours were enough to tour but I could have done 4 in your place.
Incredible experience of one of the saddest events of our generation

An incredible experience about an event that still seems unreal. Very respectful and interesting. Ensure you have time to experience this to the full - we were there for 4.5 hours. Queue jump ticket was great.
Very good...but not as amazing as I thought it would be. You can probably skip the up sell on the headphones as you could read almost anything that was said on them. Building was gorgeous. Displays were impactful.
