9/11 Tribute Museum Tours

31 Reviews
Founded by the September 11th Families’ Association, this moving museum (formerly known as the 9/11 Tribute Center) tells the story of the 2001 Twin Towers attacks from the perspective of individuals directly affected by them. Exhibits include personal accounts, family photographs, and artifacts recovered from the World Trade Center wreckage. Displays lay bare the horrors of that tragic day while bringing to light individual responses and reactions, and showcasing the resilience, courage, and compassion of the human spirit.
 
The Basics
The events of September 11th, 2001, shook not just New York City but the whole world, and served as a historic turning point that changed the entire course of the early 21st century. The 9/11 Tribute Museum is a must-do for anyone who wants to hear vivid, eye-witness accounts of the events of that pivotal day. Visitors can tour the museum independently and take a walking tour around the 9/11 Memorial Plaza, led by a guide with a direct connection to the events. For an even more comprehensive experience, combine a visit to the Tribute Museum with a trip to the separate and larger-scale National September 11 Memorial & Museum, which offers a broader overview of the tragic day.
