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.

Moving experience. Long queues but well organised with time slots for entry. Booking online makes a lot of sense. Did our own walking tour, lots to take in. My husband, exited before the end as the crowds were dense! Too good in my opinion not to see it all! Needs at least 3 hours to absorb it all. Warning- don't... More

Wanted to see this memorial, and wasn't sure how I felt about it. But was so glad I saw it! Really well done memorial, with a lot of though put into it. It's still on my mind. A must-see.

Very well realised and thought out. The focus is on two central pools and the addition of a white rose in the name plate of each person on their birthday is a beautiful touch.

It's hard to describe this museum as "fun" but it is definitely educational and thought-provoking. My husband and I were both reduced to tears at different times during our visit but overall really enjoyed it. The design of the museum and memorial park are wonderful and meaningful. The lines can be long so it's best to plan ahead and reserve... More

Went to the Memorial and the Museum on Monday of Thanksgiving week. The fountains weren't running on the Memorial as it was windy. The line was long for the museum mostly due to the security but it did move pretty quick. Plan about 2 hours for the Museum. Would like to go back someday and bring the rest of the... More

This is a must see when visiting New York. The memorial has been very nicely done. Great place to pay respects to the people who lost their lives.

The museum is much bigger than we expected. You probably need to prepare for ~2 hours for the visit. It was very crowded during weekends. Sometimes one had to wait in the line till others started to move. The design and construction of the museum is great, with all the pictures, videos, stories telling you what was happening on that...
