Will we need advance tickets for 911 Museum in New York for weekend of Feb 16/17

I'm getting mixed results on this from internet searches. Older results lean toward getting tickets in advance while some newer posts don't seem to think it's critical. Thought I'd try to get some current info on this from someone with recent experience.
Thanks

That is Presidentsí Day Weekend so there will be more visitors in NYC. Also schools in New England are closed that week for Winter Break including the nearby Connecticut suburbs. To be safe I would book ahead.

It depends on how flexible your schedule is and if you don;t mind if you have to wait a couple of hours to get tickets to get in.

Wow...I hadn't even factored in President's Day. Good point.
Thanks

If I were you, I would book your tickets online, but I am pretty sure you will be allowed to enter, if you arrive earlier than your designated time slot. We had done it in January 2018. If not, there are plenty of sights to see nearby. You can pay respects at the 9/11 Memorial, explore The Oculus (talking about a real masterpiece of modern architecture), visit the Trinity Church... It is not a bad idea to take a walk before and after your visit to the 9/11 Museum... you will need some time to be prepared as well as to come to grips with everything you will see there. It is really heartbreaking.

I went last fall. I suggest that you consider the early morning tour that starts at 8:15am. The cost is $65/person but it is well worth the price. They only sell about 30 tickets to this tour so you are the only 30 people in the Memorial. It is quiet and gives you the opportunity to see things with out distraction. At 9am they start the regular tours and the place really fills up. You can stay after the tour but the quiet time was priceless.
