Overview
More
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.

Without doubt this is a must see tourist attraction but beyond that an appropriate way to pay your respects. The museum is incredibly tasteful and well done when you consider the subject matter, and in its own right it's a marvel or architecture as the...More

Very moving but without a guide or signage not everything is obvious. Lots of visitors milling around kinda detracts from the serenity implicit in the design. That said we saw it as part of a tour and were pressed for time. Did not go to...More

One of the most powerful sites that will leave you speechless. Give yourself 3 hours to properly tour the museum and the pools. Also, download the apps ahead of time and bring your own earbuds- you can follow the tour that way.

It was a beautiful day and as you arrive at the memorial, you still feel the weight of that occurrence. I loved the movement and the honoring of all who passed on 9/11. We will never forget.

It is hard to put into words how to recommend this memorial and museum to other travelers. It is a very fitting tribute to those who lost their lives. It does bring into perspective (especially for someone from another country) the size and scale of...More

Having come from another country I'd seen documentaries on the attack but that doesn't come close to the experience of being at the site and seeing it for yourself. The memorial has been put together thoughtfully, the museum is comprehensive and very moving. Things to...More

City Pass, absolutely. The more items you purchase on one pass the deeper the discount. Also you get preferred line at some attractions. It's the only way we go.
