9/11 Memorial & Museum

The defining moment of America's last decade is burned into our collective imaginations: the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, when New York's World Trade Center crashed to the ground. Ten years later, on the spot where the Twin Towers fell, a memorial to all those lost that day (including at the Pentagon, Shanksville, PA and those killed in the 1993 bombing) was finally unveiled in a solemn ceremony.

All are invited to the space, located in the heart of a new World Trade Center still under construction. It is a rare greenscape in lower Manhattan, shaded by rustling swamp white oaks that were chosen for their muted yellow hue come autumn. Two enormous fountains, designed by architects Michael Arad with landscape architect Peter Walker, mark the footprints of the fallen towers with plunging waterfalls. These are surrounded by bronze parapets, engraved with the names of those lost. Personal tributes are welcome. The 9/11 Memorial Museum is due to open in the spring of 2014.

Practical Info

The 9/11 Memorial is currently accessible only with a free visitor pass, which can be reserved in advance either online or by phone at (212) 266-5211. Viator also offers tours that include a ticket and guided tour through the memorial.

Security, during this interim period, is tight, so large bags and other items are forbidden; check the website for details.
