Owner description: 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.

If you remember THE day it's difficult to give a rating with a horrible memory attached but if you're in NYC it has a certain fascination I guess. Much has been done to honor those poor people and the whole area is still a little chaotic with a lot of repair and renovation going on. On-line booking for a small fee helped us get in real quick.

Be prepared for long queues and security checks but worth it, this is a free venue but they do ask for a donation which is acceptable

I didn't know what to expect but the simplicity of the design made it stunning. Given the numbers there it still had the air of grief and although people were talking it didn't distract everyone was respectful. I don't think you can appreciate the devastation and human loss until you actually see the names all around the outer wall of each waterfall. Yes they are building around the area but that didn't change the atmosphere and when the work has finished the site will be even more beautiful. Book your visit in advance as we went and it was full so we went online and booked a place for the next day. Donations rather than an actual charge which I think is a good idea as it doesn't restrict those who would want to pay their respects but can't afford a set fee and those that can give more are able to.

This is the most moving memorial I have seen. An absolute must.
We especially liked the fact that it did not matter where we stood we couldn't see the bottom of the memorial.
