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.

What People Are Saying About 9/11 Memorial
Thank you to GetYourGuide for making it easy for me to get to see the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. I couldn't stop crying and it reminded me of the Holocaust Museum. At the same time I admired the resiliency of the survivors and my fellow New Yorkers.
What I found truly amazing....??? Was how quiet the Museum was though full of Spectators. The Memorial was truly RESPECTED by all in attendance! And, you didn't have to know a sole that was lost.... the incredible sadness brought about on that Horrific Day... brought tears to everyone!!!
Amazing memorial with many touching memories and items. We found this space very moving
It was a good experience, I had two days only in New York, and with this trip I succeeded to visit all the most important places. The guide is special, you will not feel bored, and you will learn about the places you are visiting. Good time for taking photos, enjoying the places and be back on time. The group was small, about 9 people, I had a good time.
Tour was personal and well done. The 9-11 Memorial is fitting and appropriate for what happened that day. The Museum is also very well done. A somber place, the museum gives the visitor a sense of the enormity of the buildings, the attack and the destruction of places and lives.
