The 9/11 Museum Audio Guide app will take up a mere 3.5 MB of space on your iPhone or iPad. This app features themed audio tours that cover not just the attacks of September 11, 2001, but also the attacks that took place at the World Trade Center on February 26, 1993.
Within the app, there are three different tours covering the details of the archeological elements of the museum along with discussions regarding the design of the memorial.
Tours are produced by Acoustiguide and there are also VoiceOver featured tours for the visitors of the museum who are visually challenged.
Suitable for Adults and Children
The three main tours within this app are Witnessing History, Discovering History, and Building History. The Witnessing History tour is narrated by none other than Robert DeNiro, who will guide you through the various events and aftermath of the ill-fated day of American history. You will hear accounts of family members of the victims, the first responders, recovery workers, and others who were involved in the incident and its aftermath to help you get a sense of what it was like. You can choose between six languages or the American Sign Language.
The Building History tour will guide you through the architecture of the building, giving you information on the design of both the original building as well as the museum. It will also help you get a sense of the archaeological remnants of the WTF which are present in the museum.
Finally, the Discovering History tour is the best option if you are taking your children along with you to the museum, as it gives a recollection of the events of that fateful day in a manner that is appropriate for kids ages 8 to 11.

There is nothing negative to say about this app
The 9/11 Museum Audio Guide app is a must-have for those who are considering a visit to the 9/11 Memorial Museum. As you walk around the building and listen to the audio tours on your iPhone or iPad, it’ll give you a real sense of the sequence of events but also show you how people came together to help one another out in such dire times, highlighting the tenacity of the human spirit. Highly recommended!
