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.

This very well done museum provides a somber and touching telling of the events of 9/11/2001 and those who perished that day. It slowly guides you into the beginning of the day, the frantic calls from offices and planes and the the falling of the...More

9/11 is defining moment in the history of NYC as well as the country. It is now a part of the fabric of the city. You cannot understand and appreciate the city today without some understanding of the events of that day.

Financial District
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,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

City Pass, absolutely. The more items you purchase on one pass the deeper the discount. Also you get preferred line at some attractions. It's the only way we go.

We went on the fly and I would buy the tickets right outside at one of the kiosks. I did the guided tour as you go right to the front of the line on the weekends. If you go during the week- go in the morning before the... More
