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.

Incredibly well done. Was reluctant to go. Afraid it would be too emotional and bring back still raw emotions. Too the contrary. Brought closer. Don't get me wrong, will bring tears. But so well done. Covers all aspects of events.

This was a very moving experience. We all remember where we were when the planes hit the towers. I felt those involved with the design of this museum did their best to build a fitting memorial that honours the memory of all victims...get tickets in advance

You would be mad not to visit. Brings everything into perspective ❤. The stories and artifacts make it very realistic. There has been a fantastic job done on making a memorial to all the lives taken x

Amazing going underground Manhattan to see the foundation of the towers. The presentations were intuitive and informative, the chills, tears and goosebumps we all brought ourselves.

Amazing tribute to a terrible event. Very emotional morning spent at ground zero however really learned a lot more about what happened. Tastefully put together and really hits home how terrible that day really was. Must see / do if you get the chance!

You can spend anywhere from one to several hours there, at your own pace. Museum actually located under the towers' footprint. Tons of artifacts, stories and even voicemail recording. Very well done

I loved this museum.. The last time I was in New York the towers were standing.. To see this museum was emotional and heart wrenching.. I'm so very glad I went to see it.. So beautifully and respectfully put together.. The auditorium upstairs was for me the most moving, to see people like Conda Lisa Rice, Rudi Guiliana & George... More

Not very long, but interesting. If you already know about 9/11 in NYC, there is not a lot of new information, but it is still worth seeing. Kind of expensive for what you get.
