Will you visit & Bring your kids?

NEW YORK – The Sept. 11 museum is taking shape 70 feet below ground, a cavernous space that provides an emotionally raw journey and ends at bedrock where huge surviving remnants and spacial voids reveal the scale of the devastation of what once was the World Trade Center.

The museum's architects, director and two victims' family members led members of the news media Tuesday on a tour of the subterranean space, which commemorates nearly 3,000 people who died in the 1993 and 2001 terrorist attacks.

There are no display cabinets yet, no exhibits. It is still a construction site. But it was easy to visualize the intent of the spaces, clearly articulated by the acute voids created by the fallen towers.

  • Yes.

    We did go and peered into the GZ hole in 2002- and we did bring our kids.

  • Yes if I lived close I would visit. maybe not bring my kids since they are to little to understand what went on there

  • I know sooner or later I will visit the museum and I would defiently take my oldest son and I will probably take my younger boys also but after I have seen it first. The reason I would want to see it first is because I would want to be able to answer any questions they had. It is part of history and I think they should know about it.

  • i don't know. it depends on how they present their information. I would probably visit if i was close enough, regardless. But i'm not so sure about the kids.

  • I don't live near it and my kids are small so I would not go anytime soon. But if it seemed interesting enough to visit based on lots of credible reviews, i would certainly consider taking a trip with the family to see.
