What to see at the 9/11 Memorial

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?

Twin Reflecting Pools

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.

Facing Crisis: America Under Attack

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.

Survivor Tree

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.

Foundation Hall

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.

Ground Zero Museum

The museum allows you to interact with artifacts and voice clips from September 11th.

9/11 Memorial: Our Tips

When should I go?

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.

How should I behave?

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.

Can I bring children?

The exhibitions may not be appropriate for children under the age of 10 - especially if they are liable to make a lot of noise.

Are there any special procedures before entering?

Security screening is mandatory before entry. Only bags measuring under 8 x 17 x 19 inches are permitted inside the memorial - larger bags can be stored.

Our guide was amazing and museum was such a tribute to 9-11.

The guide was so knowledgeable and interesting as he gave us a history of the twin towers etc. He spoke loudly and very plainly so as entire group could hear his comments.

Personable, interactive, and thoughtful guide.

Our guide was excellent. She was knowledgeable, and took time to answer questions from all members of the group. She could not have been nicer or more professional.

A wonderful way to get the first overview of NY

Walking with this guided groups through the different quarters of NY was a very good and helping way to do the first steps in this awesome city! It helped me to focus later on on the things I wanted to know better. Thanks for this idea, I will recommend you guys!
