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.

We did the audio guide which takes you through the highlights of the museum, but the core exhibition with hundreds of articles from the towers and the people who lost there lives could absorb your attention for hours. The museum is open late, so it is a great spot to spend a rainy afternoon or dark winter evening.

We went to 9/11 Memorial and Museum to better understand the local point of view of 9/11 events. I was "captured" in LA on 9/11 and saw the events from my hotel bed, unbelieving to what I see on TV. My focus was on the implication of this terror act on the world's future and only later, when the facts... More

Another visit to Ground Zero. Names of those who lost their life on 911 attach is inscribed on the stone walls of the memorial. Very well created and maintained. Respect to innocent human life lost during the barbaric act.

This is my 2nd time going to the 9/11 Memorial. I didn't realize how much I did miss my first time. It was very emotional and draining the first time. This time I went it made me feel proud and grateful for all the first responders that gave their life to go back to look for survivors. It made me... More

I have been waiting 15 years to visit Ground Zero. The wait was well worth it. We did a guided tour with a very knowledgeable women. She had many antidotes. Stories of courage and survival. Astonishingly, the little St. Paul's Chapel less than a block away was totally not damaged. Not even a broken window like most of the buildings... More
