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.

The water falls are a sight to behold. This memorial is a fitting and respectful reminder of that awful day

We have gone up many times now. We were disappointed this last trip to see they put metal skyline statue type things at the bottom of every window. We liked sitting and admiring the view but now it's not possible. I guess some people would sit for hours and not move for others to get a chance. Otherwise it's a... More

We did not expect to be awe inspired and so emotional going through this museum. It was so tastefully put together considering what transpired on that fateful day. It is a wonderful tribute to those who lost their lives and to those who came together to help one another. I have to go back again some day as there was... More

This is an absolute must do thing - the feeling, the pictures, the atmosphere it's both haunting and humbling and with every detail you learn you become more & more involved with what happened on that tragic day - learning about the individuals there names there families there stories..... I can still hear the water pools every time I think... More

We did not do the museum, the memorial itself was what we came to see and it is also free of course. It is beautiful and very emotional to stand there and remember that day. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.

Humbling. Respectful. Emotional. A fitting memorial to those who lost their lives on that fateful day. Wander round the waterfalls outside before entering and see the short film in the auditorium to put events into context for those too young to remember. We all got so much from visiting the memorial and museum.

Very neatly captures the essence of 911. All the artifacts and pieces are a true reminder of what our country went through.

so worth visiting, although very upsetting, it's also inspiring and so well organised. Try to download the 911 museum app before you go so you can listen to the guided tour via your smartphone

As a New Yorker I had no intention of seeing this museum. However, as happens with intentions, my out of town friends bought me a ticket and pulled me along. This is an amazing museum. It is very hard to see of course and takes hours to do it well like 3 plus, but it is very comprehensive and done... More
