The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is a place of remembrance...

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.

The museum was tastefully done yet quite sobering. Twisted steel was displayed like art work, there were cement steps from an emergency stairwell, audio stories, photos, and much much more.

As an international visitor this memorial was very moving. Having watched it all unfold from Sydney all that time ago, the scale of it all didn't come through the TV. Being at Ground Zero in person was an amazing and moving experience. So too was the museum; there are videos showing it all happen, personal effects from the incident and... More

Certainly for those of us who lived the date, especially if you're from the tri-state area you owe it to yourself. It's a way of honoring our history. It's a moving tribute to a horrible day.

It feels very expensive but is a great way of seeing the city from above. I wonder what the revenue is used for.

Being a NY'er and experiencing that awful day I didn't think I would want to see it. We had out of town visitors so I took them and I'm so glad I did. The whole experience was so tastefully done to show everyone what really happened.

The elevator ride is awesome, 360 degrees view with tourist guides to assist you with all your questions. Try to buy the express line pass because you will save a... More

The brochure says the average stay is 1 1/2 hour we stayed 3 1/2 hour and could have stayed longer. I suggest going into the center room first before you get too tired as there is so much to read see and absorb. The experience is over whelming. Then if you still have energy walk around the perimeter of the... More

It is definitely a soul stirring experience. Very peaceful. Definitely visit it if you are nearby. Both MTA / Path train stations are within 2 block distance.
