Description:

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.

Thank god for my girlfriend who runs the Memorial who let us skip the long, long line. If it weren't for her, I'm not sure I would have waited on the line, its crazy long. Anyway, it's still a must see. It's heart wrenching and sad. There's not much to write a review on, this is a place where thousands... More

The memorial is a very complete activity, but it's a moment to think the horrific things that happened that day. It's an example for this never to happen again, and to be better human beings. It's a MUST.

Wow - what a perfect and beautiful way to have somewhere for people to pay respects and remember those lost in the 9/11 attacks. It was an extremely peaceful place to visit all the while trying hard to pay justice to all the victims and people affected by the attacks. There is so much to see and I learnt things... More

This memorial museum has been put together incredibly well, with 1st hand audio recordings from the day and video/photographic records. It can't fail to take you back to the impact and emotions of those horrendous events. I'm glad I went but be prepared to be deeply moved and affected.

We visited the memorial last week and it had a profound effect upon us. It is beautifully laid out and includes numerous exhibits and personal accounts of what happened that awful day in 2001. We were determined to get through it with a stiff upper lip but failed miserably....it was so moving. Luckily they provided plenty of paper hankies for... More

U can follow along but actually I was a bit confused at times. If u walk out of the entrance way u see an escalator down..that is where u will... More

Impressive. So sad to see all those names on the black marble and to imagine all the lives that were affected by those deaths ... Personally, I found it somewhat odd that there is a shopping mall right at the Memorial.

Great balance of history, artifacts, and presentation. Took my family of 6. 20 year old, two teenagers and an 11 year old. Everyone thought it was great...and sad.
