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 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.

What people are saying about 9/11 Memorial
We learned so much from this experience that we would have never known. Benoit took us around and answered all our questions and now that we are back home I'm encouraging everyone that goes to New York to take this tour!
As a New Yorker, I lived the days after 911 when the World Trade Center was struck down. The museum is a wonderful tribute to the many, many lives lost and the tragedy that our country faced then.
We did not know what to expect in the museum. It was amazing. The size was extraordinary, exhibits meaningful, layout excellent. The occasional speakers were well received by us and we wish there had been more of them. The dining facility was also well done. There were just a few choices and that was plenty. No need for more. What we ordered was delicious. The serving staff were cheerful and helpful and I complimented them as they had their hands full. We went back later for tea and a cookie and to think about what we had seen. A good day! Also I was unable to access the section for age in this questionnaire. We are over 65.
Our tour guide, Kernan, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The weather wasn’t great but he made sure to work with all of us to make sure we hit important stops but include breaks to warm up and rest. There wasn’t a question that was asked that he didn’t have an educated answer for. Highly recommend including one of these tours for a first timer to New York!!!
Fab tour, brilliant guide! Covered every thing we wanted to see. Lots of knowledge about every aspect of the tour. Tom was fab! Would definately recommend this tour.
