Decided to stop and see what this was about. Glad I did. Alot of information in a small amount of space. When you see the twisted metal from the actual building it just takes your breath away. I plan to visit this every year!

Amazing memorial, well done and educational. Thank you to all of those that made it possible. I think next time I might bring a chair and sit while I read the panels and I'd like to go back for the timing of the light going...More

Amazing tribute monument for our men of the nation of USA. Spent some time with friends here and discussing that very day. Very sad day and will never forget the place is very peaceful and makes you think of many events in life

This exhibit is small but powerful. Reading the accounts of each flight brought tears to my eyes. I couldn’t help but say a prayer for the victims and their families. We must not forget. This was a great tragedy that I pray never happens again....More

Yesterday, my friend and I went to see the 9/11Memorial. He and his wife moved to Leawood from New York City approximately 10 years ago, and had not heard about the OPKS 9/11 Memorial until I mentioned it to him a couple weeks ago. 9/11...More

This memorial has pieces from the towers and a simple but lovely setting. It is hidden away a bit so one must see the signs and go back along a city street. It is well worth visiting.

This is a very unique story of 9/11. It has a timeline that allows you to get an idea of everything that was going on around the nation that day. It's free and worth the time.

If you do a search on the web for 9/11 Memorial, Overland Park, Kansas there is a 3 minute video of the Memorial and hopefully you can tell if it is your granddaughter and son. Carolyn
