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.

Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

We visited the Memorial Park last week. It has to be one of the saddest places to visit but you must go. The waterfalls leading into the Black Holes are so significant. So awful. So desperately sad. People leaving badges, flowers, copying names. Lives destroyed. I was so upset, it's just so terribly sad. But do go, do leave a donation when you apply for your pass ... Support this wonderful initiative. Great people.

“Very fitting and moving tribute”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

This is something not to miss in New York and it provides a chance to pay respect to those who were affected by that day. The scale of the tragedy is really brought home and it's so well done its a credit to everyone involved. Such a quiet and eerily beautiful space you can't help but be moved. It's hard to comprehend that it's actually the resting place of thousands of people. It's important. that we don't forget what happened here and it's a must see in New York.

“Very moving !!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

lt was well worthwhile visiting 9/11 memorial. Very emotional with everyone very deep in thought, thinking of what everyone involved went through on the actual day. Really well constructed & fitting memorial in memory of those who lost their lives going about their normal day. We were there beginning of July 2013 & there was a lot of building work still going on. Hopefully next time we are back in New York we will visit again & all work will be finished. Looking forward to it already.
