One of the advantages of the Intrepid Museum in that regard are that a good part of exhibited aircraft are outside on the flight deck.

I would agree. I think 9-11 is worth seeing though. Plus the reflecting pools are outside

The 9/11 Museum is interesting but from my experience it is very crowded. One can just visit the reflecting pools to get the feel of the tragic attack. Then I would suggest visiting the Freedom Tower Observation Deck.

At a minimum, I can accept that as a visit to 9-11. The museum is an experience and I think an important one, but limited time requires quick stops.
