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 museum is vast underground with a lot of information, both visual and audio. Be prepared to visit for 3-4 hours. We would recommend the guided tour, $20. The guide... More

This is a very emotional and informative museum. Many artifacts and exhibits. To get the most out of the place you need to give it three hours. It can be done in less time but you'll need to skip some exhibits. Download the app and bring ear buds to have a free self-guided tour. Small children will not have patience... More

I would suggest that everyone visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum it is very well done, quite informative, emotional, and inspiring. Plan to spend a least a half of day there in order to see everything.

I visited the memorial with my sister as part of our 5 day trip. We bought a city pass from our hotel but you can get them from most places, it includes 6 attractions for $116 and the 9/11 memorial was one of the attractions included. The museum and memorial are amazing very emotional but so interesting to see. Before... More

I love the 9/11 memorial, just staring into the pools, looking at the names of the people and staring up at the one world trade center and imaging what it would have been like that day. Its sad but it is an expirience I will never forget.
