The 9/11 Memorial is a place where you can learn about the terrible events of September 11th, 2001, and reflect on what it means to you - either as an American, or as an international visitor. What are some of the points not to be missed?
Two one-acre pools, with biggest artificial waterfalls in North America, stand exactly where the Twin Towers were. The names of those who died are listed on the pool walls.
This film examines the day's events, compiling interviews with prominent figures such as George W. Bush. It runs daily every half hour, lasting for about a quarter of an hour.
This callery pear tree amazingly survived the downfall of the buildings. It was restored and is now a symbol of rebirth. Its seedlings are donated each year to communities in need.
This huge room contains one of the original, surviving walls of the World Trade Center as well as the Last Column, standing at 36 feet and decorated with recovered remnants.
The museum allows you to interact with artifacts and voice clips from September 11th.
The outdoors parts are probably best experienced when the city is not covered in snow. Summer is of course tourist season, so note that it will be more crowded then.
Be as quiet and respectful as possible, as some visitors - including those who knew victims - will want to use it as a place to quietly reflect.
The exhibitions may not be appropriate for children under the age of 10 - especially if they are liable to make a lot of noise.

What people are saying about 9/11 Memorial
I would highly recommend Nick as a tour guide. His presentation and personal experiences were truly felt by the whole group. Excellent tour and guide.
Downloaded and purchased tickets via the app while standing outside the ticket line that was an hour long. Quick purchase and in the doors we went. Will definitely use this again.
I had no idea how amazingly realistic and emotional the 9/11 museum was. Definately worth multiple visits and next time i would like to go up the "history of NY" elevator
Ray, our walking tour guide was excellent. He was there on 9/11. The museum was like being in church. The trip to the observatory on One World Trade was beautiful and we looked down from the top trying to imagine what people felt before they jumped.
The tour was great! Bonnie,our guide went above and beyond to help us, even after the tour was over. We learned facts we would not have learned if we would have toured the places on our own. We would recommend this tour to others.
