9/11 Memorial & Museum

Location: 180 Greenwich St, New York, NY 10007

The National September 11 Memorial & Museum are the principal memorial and museum, commemorating the September 11, 2001 attacks, which killed 2,977 victims, and the World Trade Center bombing of 1993, which killed six. The Memorial is located at the World Trade Center site, the former location of the Twin Towers, which were destroyed during the September 11 attacks.

On September 11, 2011, a dedication ceremony commemorating the tenth anniversary of the attacks was held at the memorial. It opened to the public the following day; the museum was dedicated on May 15, 2014 and opened on May 21. Three months after its opening, the memorial had been visited by over a million people.

In 2012, the 9/11 Tribute Center collaborated with the 9/11 Memorial to offer private tours, which are hosted by family members of victims, first responders, and survivors. At the Museum, the historical exhibition has three parts: The Day of 9/11, Before 9/11 and After 9/11.

It tells the story of what happened on 9/11, including the events at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and the story of Flight 93. The exhibition explores the background leading up to the events and examines their aftermath and continuing implications.

The memorial exhibition, which is named In Memoriam, commemorates the lives of those who perished on September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 and provides visitors with the opportunity to learn about the men, women and children who died. Foundation Hall is a room of massive scale, which houses both the last column and the slurry wall. New York sightseeing tours stop nearby the Memorial so hop off and explore this important site.
