DescriptionVisit the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and honor all those who lost their lives in the horrific terror attacks on September 11, 2001. Also visit the 9/11 Memorial which remembers and honors the 2,983 people who were killed in the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. Skip the ticket line by pre-purchasing your tickets online and proceed directly to the 'Ticket Holder” queue at the main entry. THE 9/11 MUSEUM The Museum displays over 10,000 monumental artifacts linked to the events of 9/11, while presenting intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning, and recovery that are central to telling the story of the 2001 and 1993 attacks, and their aftermaths. It also explores the global impact of 9/11 and its continuing significance. The Museum is made up of three permanent exhibition sections: - 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. - The Foundation Hall is a room of massive scale, which houses both the last column and the slurry wall. The Museum admission also includes entry to 3 feature Films which are repeated throughout the day: - 'Facing Crisis: America Under Attack': Key 9/11 decision makers describe the events of the day. - 'Facing Crisis: A Changed World': World leaders examine 9/11’s impact on global events. - 'Rebirth at Ground Zero': This multi-screen film experience uses time-lapse footage and recorded interviews to present an inspiring first-hand perspective of the transformation and renewal of the World Trade Center site and the uplifting personal journeys of some of those most directly affected by the attacks. Visitors are welcome to explore the Museum at their own pace. An average visit can take about two hours. THE 9/11 MEMORIAL (Free Entry) The “National September 11 Memorial” is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993. The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history. The Memorial is surrounded by Swamp White Oak trees, with the exception of a Callery pear tree became known as the 'Survivor Tree'. In October 2001, the tree was discovered at Ground Zero severely damaged, with snapped roots and burned and broken branches. The tree was removed from the rubble and after its recovery and rehabilitation, the tree was returned to the Memorial in 2010. New, smooth limbs extended from the gnarled stumps, creating a visible demarcation between the tree’s past and present. Today, the tree stands as a living reminder of resilience, survival and rebirth.
