9/11 Memorial & Museum Tour

The 9/11 Memorial is located at the site of the former World Trade Center complex and occupies approximately half of the 16-acre site.

The focal points of the Memorial are the twin reflecting pools, each nearly an acre in size, that sit in the footprints of the former North and South Towers. The pools contain the largest manmade waterfalls in North America, each descending 30 feet into a square basin. From there, the water in each pool drops another 20 feet and disappears into a smaller, central void.

According to the architect, Michael Arad, the pools represent “absence made visible.” Although water flows into the voids, they can never be filled. The sound of the cascading water makes the pools a place of tranquility and contemplation separate from the bustling noises of the city.

 

The nearly 3,000 names of the men, women, and children killed in the attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 are inscribed on bronze parapets surrounding the twin memorial pools.

Historical Exhibition: September 11, 2001

This historical exhibition presents the story of 9/11 using artifacts, images, first-person testimony, and archival audio and video recordings. The exhibition is made up of three parts: the Events of the Day, as they unfolded; Before 9/11, which provides the historical context leading up to the attacks; and After 9/11, which addresses the immediate aftermath and ongoing repercussions of the terrorist attacks.
