The National 9/11 Memorial & Museum is located at the former site of Ground Zero, the place where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center once stood before the events of September 11, 2001, in which 2,996 people were killed. A somber site, the museum tells the story of the events of 9/11 and its aftermath, and the memorial offers visitors a chance to peacefully reflect on their experience. Visit with a guide who can point out the most significant details, or book a ticket in advance to ensure that you can enter the museum at your preferred time.

At some times of the year, it can be difficult to book guided tours on the day of your visit. Book in advance and take advantage of an expert guide who can explain the significance of each item on display and the design of the building and memorial.

A trip to the memorial can be an extremely emotional event. For those who’d like to take a short walk in nature before continuing their trip, there are several parks within a couple of blocks, including City Hall Park, Columbus Park, Teardrop Park, and Battery Park.
Visitors can find another quiet and reflective space when they visit St Paul’s Chapel nearby, which was a used as a makeshift place of rest and recovery for first responders and recovery workers over the 8 month period following 9/11 as they worked through the wreckage. The chapel contains a number of exhibits including a policeman’s uniform covered with patches and badges from police and fire departments around the US. Many visitors also choose to leave impromptu memorials in the churchyard.
The museum offers free entry every Tuesday between 5 pm and 8 pm (last entry at 7 pm). Be aware that tickets for these evenings can only be reserved 2 weeks in advance and are limited in number.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will I see on my visit?

The museum is built within the archaeological remains of the World Trade Center, with a surviving retaining wall which is still covered with missing posters and memorial inscriptions place there by New Yorkers. It will also give you a sense of the scale of the buildings which were destroyed. The historical exhibition presents the story of 9/11 in three parts, divided into the events of the day, the events leading to the attacks, and the world after 9/11/ There is also a memorial exhibition commemorating the lives of all those who died in the attacks, and an exhibition for the stories of those who witnessed the attacks. The memorial, which doesn’t require a ticket, is formed of twin reflecting pools, each nearly an acre in size, and containing the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. The names of each victim of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the passengers and crew of Flight 93, and the 6 people killed in the World Trade Center bombing of 1993, are engraved on the outside of the memorial. Visitors can also see the Survivor Tree, which was found among the rubble of the World Trade Center, made a recovery, and was returned to the site as a reminder of resilience and rebirth. Read more.
