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. Open Daily.

The National 9/11 Museum is phenomenal...it is worth a trip to NY just to see it. Order tickets on line and don’t be concerned about lines in front...they move very quickly. The museum is very well designed...lots of open space so you are not crowded...More

If you were not in New York on 9/11, this will make you feel as if you were. There are hard exhibits to see (with warnings of the graphic nature of the displays)... I like the fact that they are still presented even though sometimes...More

What can you say a must to see. It was my first time and well over due. The fountains are beautiful. Stunning views of the freedom tower

We visited with my 16 yr old son and he found it distressing at first... but then boring ( he was born just after 9/11). Alternatively I found it quite moving but confronting. Worth the visit.

An incredibly well conceived attraction & fitting tribute to the poor souls who perished on that fateful day. Informative exhibitions and displays, never forgetting the loss of civilian lives. I found this an emotional experience but would definitely highly recommend you visit. New York, you...More

I have only visited the memorial as the museum I feel is in bad taste. The memorial is a very sad place and brings home the sheer scale of the attacks and loss of life. Not a long visit type place but absolutely worth going.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
