A beautiful place in memory of those who lost their lives in such a horrific event. Free to enter and a clean clear open area where you can see the names of all the innocents. May they never be forgotten.

This is free to the public and doesn't really take very long to view. It is peaceful and tranquil if you care to sit in the circular room for some quiet moments. There is a screen on the main floor where a video shares firsthand...More

An absolute must if you're in the memorial park. Very sobering and tranquil and gives a real insight into the scale of the loss in the city.
