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.

As a native New Yorker, seeing the footprints of buildings that I been inside many times is creepy. Whenever I travel over the Verrazano I look at the skyline and reminisce of the days when you could see those two massive towers rising. But having lost friends there, it is a nice place to visit and remember them. I just... More

We watched the two brief movies and then looked at the exhibits. It was like being taken back in time while watching that first movie depicting the horrendous events of 9/11. It brought back all the emotions I felt that day plus really made me think about it differently being right there where it happened. I wasn't sure how our... More

I found the guided tour gave me some new perspectives on events that day though like so many I watched the events unfold live on TV. Nevertheless, the tour shows a more intimate look at the people and events. Quite poignant and worth the steep price tag (I think it is about $50. each) for admission and tour.

This museum is so well done. We took the hour long guided tour before exploring the museum by ourselves. We could have spent more than the 2 hours there that we did.

What a beautiful, solemn place. This is a well organized and touching tour. Bring tissues and best to have a guide to help navigate. We missed some things as we toured on our own. We will definitely return.

Buy your tickets beforehand (New York City Pass) it is cheaper and saves queuing for most of the sights. This was a very moving and eye opening tour. The scale of it and the exhibits really hit home.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the National 9/11 Museum. Our only regret is that we didn't allow enough time. They use the space very well to tell a story and have thoughtful and respectful mementos for those killed on 9/11. Well worth a visit. Allow plenty of time!
