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.

it was a must for us to see this place, where one becomes still. A huge crowd was visiting a the same time but the size of the site allows you to walk around without being "pressed".

We intended to spend a couple of hours at the memorial, but ended up staying for at least 5 hours. The memorial is very well laid out and gives a respectful but insightful account of the events leading up to and including that fateful day. The stories of the heroism and bravery, and selflessness of those in the rescue and... More

Definately worth a visit. Book in advance as the queues are long if you buy tickets on the day. Lots of memorabilia. Narrative describing before, during and after the attacks.

A really fantastic museum re-telling 911 and providing insights and stories that we haven't all heard before.

My only recommendation, apart from saying you have to go,... More

I really didn't want to visit this museum, but feel glad that I did. It was a huge display of an incredible amount of paraphenalia associated with the terrorist attacks, including fire trucks destroyed. Also included the history of Bin Laden and the sequence of events that led to his death. An overwhelming experience that was very confronting.

This was a very moving and somber visit. So, why would you want to visit? Because it's a day in our history that changed all of our lives in one way or another. So much devastation in one day. The heroes that stepped up and saved lives and assisted in the recovery efforts made me walk away feeling a renewed... More

Very moving and interesting museum. Hard to take in what happened on that day even after seeing all these memorials & videos. The devastation of that day is brought to life on a smaller scale in this museum. Well worth the visit!

This is a beautiful tribute to the people and events of 9/11. We lost a family member on that day so it holds a special place. It is respectful and informative, disturbing but true. A must for all to understand.

A beautiful memorial to those that lost their lives in the devastating attacks of September 2011. Even as a foreigner I was moved to tears by the stories that were told and the items on display.
