Both a moving tribute of commemoration and honor, and the ongoing exploration of September 11th’s continuing significance, the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City utilizes state-of-the-art multimedia exhibits, archives, and a collection of artifacts to survey the historic consequence of that tragic date.

The main exhibitions on display include the Historical Exhibition, which explores the background leading up to the events and examines their aftermath, and the Memorial Exhibition, which commemorates the lives of those who perished on September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. This exhibition features portrait photographs of the victims, allowing guests to learn more about the men, women and children who died.

Visitors can also venture through Foundation Hall, with ceilings ranging from 40 to 60 feet and nearly 15,000 square feet of floor space. You’ll see a portion of the slurry wall, a surviving retaining wall of the original World Trade Center that withstood the devastation of 9/11. Against this backdrop, the Last Column stands 36-feet high and is covered with mementos, memorial inscriptions, and missing posters placed there by ironworkers, rescue workers and others.

Guests are welcome to view films investigating the attacks, as well as attend live talks featuring heartfelt personal stories.

At the heart of the memorial are the nearly 3,000 names of the men, women, and children killed in the attacks, each inscribed on bronze parapets surrounding the twin Memorial pools. These pools and cascading waterfalls are set in the exact footprints of the North and South World Trade Center Towers, which were destroyed on September 11, 2001. The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America.

Names are stencil-cut into the parapets, allowing visitors to look through the names at the water. At night, light shines up through the voids created by each letter of a name. Experience this moving tribute to the past, present and future when you visit The National September 1 Memorial Museum with
