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.

First, I want to say that you can visit the Memorial without paying to go to the Museum. We searched and searched to see if these were two separate sites. Everywhere it says "Memorial and Museum". Since I had already seen the Memorial 4yrs ago...More

What a breathtaking experience. Wonderful museum. So much information I didn’t know about. Shed a tear or two on the way around. Allow at least 4/5 hours to have a good look around.

I’m not the sentimental type, but this place really got to me. So meaningfully constricted, respecting the life of each individual who lost their life in one way or another through 9/11. A must-see for everyone visiting NYC.

skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
