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.

Very emotional

Somehow everything that happened there has been captured in the memorial which makes it a very emotional place even if you have no real connection to New York or America

Everyone should visit the 9/11 site and pay their respects. You can view the site of the original twin towers free of charge and you must visit the museum on the same site (entrance fee applies). The museum has been very well thought out and takes you through the history of the twin towers right up to that horrific day... More

Ground Zero is a beautiful memorial dedicated to those who died during the 9/11 terror attacks. It's so peaceful there for a moment to reflect and remember all those who lost their lives. The museum is generally very emotional and as soon as I walked in I could feel my eyes filling up. It is so insightful and interesting it... More

My husband, two teens, and I came to New York for Spring Break. On a drizzly day, we needed something to do that was indoors, and this museum fit the bill. Whoa-- I expected a museum about this tragic hostorial event to be interesting, but I did not expect to be enthralled with the museum-led narrative for over 4 hours.... More

This was my second time visiting the museum and third at the memorial. Each time I saw something new, there is so much to absorb. Plan to be there for several hours.

Our first time in NYC, but this is not to be missed. Very sad...an emotional experience. I've travel to the Anne Frank house, Hiroshima, and Gettysburg...this is by far the most emotional of the museums. So many stories of lives cut short.

This was on top of our list for must sees. I was pregnant when the Towers were hit. I was glued to the TV coverage and bought the TimeLife book on it not long after. I remember where I was when I got word. Seared in my memory. America united that day. We sent provisions for the working dogs several... More

The city has done a fantastic job with the memorial and museum. My husband and I spent about three hours there and we both found it to be very moving.

Bryan was our tour guide on 3.26 visit to the Memorial & Museum. He did a fantastic job of providing not only information, but did so with great passion. I highly recommend the tour with a guide. Hopefully they will be as knowledgeable as our guide.
