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.

I underestimated just how moving and emotional our visit to the memorial would be. Seeing name after name after name will leave you feeling very emotional and touched.

Always a very sobering visit, being our third time, even for those of us from overseas. However, it is interesting to see the Memorial Park growing, both with the planted trees and the new buildings. We can now see how the whole Memorial is now becoming what those who planned it, wanted it to be. Always worth the time and... More

The museum is just so moving. I experienced a wide range off emotions while there. Sadness, anger, patriotism..to name a few. So many stories, so much loss and sorrow, so many heros! It's amazing to watch the film on the cleanup and reconstruction, mind boggling that they did it so quickly and so damn well. After all the emotions I... More

I had planned to skip this museum because the idea of making an attraction over a tragedy wasn't really appealing to me. However, the entry was part of my City Pass and also heard from friends this place was a must see and decided to give it a try. It was actually different than I expected. You can see anything...

I was blown away by the depth of this museum and their depiction of 9/11 and the amount of info, relics, photos etc... I spent over 3 hrs walking around the various exhibits and could have used at least another 2 hrs to see the films and the last wing I missed. So much care given to detail from the... More

It was a little expensive to enter ($24 adult), but the place is hugh, so much to see, including the minute by minute of how it happen (so emotional), so many photos, artitfacts and... More

No-one who visits New York should not visit this Memorial and Museum, it was such a sad day in the worlds history but what has been created here is special, to walk in the area where the towers once stood, to feel the sombre mood of all there is special and and such all those who lost their lives there...

We visited the 9/11 Memorial and Museum on snowy day in NYC. As a result we did not spend as much time as we would have liked viewing and walking around the 9/11 Memorial. Instead we went inside to the museum. Without a doubt the 9/11 Museum is so beautufully and tastefully done, The Museum contains so many artifacts, information,... More
