When we first got there we wondered if we were even in the right place. We went in and went upstairs to a one room place. I kept thinking there has to be more rooms somewhere. Still feeling skeptical and thinking did I just waste my money on this, I soon found out it was way more than what I could have imagined. Having a one on one experience with Gary as our personal guide and host was phenomenal. Having experienced the aftermath of 9/11 firsthand gave a much more personal and meaningful tour of the pictures and artifacts in the museum. It was so worth going to. We all enjoyed it.

The proprietress is getting a bit old but she still gets around quite well and is very accommodating. She actually lives in an annex house to the house she rents out and we were the only guests these two days so we had the whole house to ourselves. We probably will not see her except when she cooks breakfast in the mornings. She even showed us all the rooms and gave us our choice. My wife chose the prettiest room. And the whole house is gorgeous with antiques and snacks for us if we want eat some. It is a cozy, beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood.

Loved this experience. It was so personable and you really get to learn a lot about 9/11 and the people involved.

Wonderful Mexican murals exhibit. Not too many people in the museum. I felt very comfortable.

It was amazingly done we learned so much in highly recommended
