Overview
More
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is a place of remembrance honoring those who perished in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The 9/11 Memorial consists of two massive pools set within the original footprints of the Twin Towers with 30-foot waterfalls cascading down their sides. The nearly 3,000 names of the men, women, and children killed in the attacks are inscribed into bronze parapets surrounding the twin Memorial pools. The 9/11 Memorial is open daily from 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. and is free to the public. The 9/11 Memorial Museum displays monumental artifacts linked to the events of 9/11, while presenting intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning and recovery that are central to telling the story of the 2001 and 1993 attacks and the aftermath. It also explores the global impact of 9/11 and its continuing significance. The 9/11 Memorial Museum is open Sun - Thu, 9:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., last entry at 6:00 p.m. and Fri and Sat, 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m., last entry at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are required. Open Daily.

When you visit the 9/11 memorial a lot of emotions arrive to you. The memorial is a quiet place where you can make a pray for all 9/11 heroes.

I have to agree with so many other reviewers that the 9/11 memorial and museum was not only very informative, but a very befitting tribute to those who lost their lives on this fateful day. I had not appreciated that so many of those killed...More

This is a very somber activity. It is meant to evoke feelings of sadness and awe - and does. My wife was overwhelmed with emotion the first time we went. This time, she held together better. My boys wanted to go when I took them...More

Well worth a visit and getting the headphones for self guided tour. Very poignant and thought-provoking. The commentary gave very balanced view. Wasn't all "isn't America great".

If was an incredibly emotional visit to the 9/11 museum. The museum has been crafted with a great deal of sensitivity whilst also reflecting the horror of the events that took place that morning. Be prepared to be moved.

Most of the tourists felt bad when the museum is closed without informing. Even their site did not have timings. Very bad

I visited the 9/11 museum and memorial as I felt I just had to when in NYC. It was quite overwhelming and harrowing but important to see I feel. I was disappointed with people taking smiley pictures however.

At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,

Obviously the pools are free but the museum itself you have to pay for. We didn't go into the other bit but it wasn't too bad when we were there. We went later in the day about 1700 & it was fine hardly any queuing at all.
