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.

In every way, this memorial is stunning. Everything from the space configuration, to the exhibits, to the multimedia presentations were exceptionally executed. If you want to... More

So much care and attention to detail went into the design of this beautiful memorial and museum honoring those who gave the ultimate sacrifice on that crisp, clear September morning. Heroes rose up that day. Humanity became its best, after evil presented its worst. Very humbling; very moving; and very worthy of every American to visit and remember those whom... More

From the museum, to the memorials where the two towers once stood, to the Survivor Tree still standing, and finally, the new One World Tower, this is an emotional experience, but one that should be seen.

The memorial is free and when you see the pools it brings home the size of the Twin Towers and what was lost. All the name of the victims are inscribed around the pools, and every morning a white rose is placed on the name of anyone whose birthday it would have been. Well worth a visit even if you... More
