NEW YORK CITY | The 9/11 Memorial & Museum is a memorial and museum in New York City commemorating the September 11, 2001 attacks, which killed 2,977 people, and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, which killed six.
Located on the site of the former World Trade Center, the memorial and museum explores 9/11, documents its impact, and examines its continuing significance. At the same time it honours those who died in the tragedy. The memorial occupies approximately half of the 16-acre site, and its twin reflecting pools, each nearly an acre in size, feature the largest man-made waterfalls in North America.
Each of the twin waterfall pools is surrounded by bronze parapets that list the names of the victims of the 9/11 attacks and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Paper roses are placed on the names of the victims on what would have been their birthdays. It’s a sobering place, a place for reflection, and a place that every visitor to New York should visit.
The Memorial is free and open to the public. The Museum requires tickets for entry.
