• Admission to the 9/11 Memorial Museum
Discover the invincible spirit of New York City at the 9/11 Memorial Museum. This tour is a must for anyone visiting New York. Emotional, moving, and educational.
At the National 9/11 Memorial Museum you can take a self-guided audio tour at the museum dedicated to honoring the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The Museum tells the story of 9/11 through interactive technology, archives, narratives and a collection of artifacts. Hear stories from first responders, see panoramic timelapse footage from Ground Zero and learn about the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks in this 110,000 square foot space.
What makes the 9/11 Memorial Museum unique is that it’s located within the remnants of the original World Trade Center site. The Foundation Hall, Memorial Hall, Pavilion and Ramp are all spaces dedicated to remembering 9/11. The Foundation Hall has ceilings ranging from 40 to 60 feet and nearly 15,000 square feet of floor space - the largest of the spaces within the Museum. There, you can find part of the wall originally built to hold back the Hudson River and the remains of cutoff box columns that once formed the exterior structure of the Twin Towers.
In addition to the two core exhibits – Historical Exhibition and Memorial Exhibition, the 9/11 Memorial Museum has introduced its brand-new exhibit. The “Comeback Season: Sports After 9/11” exhibit explores how sports and athletes helped to unite the country, console a grieving nation and give us a reason to cheer again following the 2001 attacks. An emotional story arc describes the bonds between famous athletes and first responders and the families of 9/11 victims. Some signature exhibition moments include President Bush’s first pitch in the fall of 2001, Mike Piazza’s home run in the first professional baseball game in NYC post 9/11, and The New York City Marathon demonstrating the city’s resilience as 30,000 runners passed in front of millions of spectators on Nov. 4, 2001.
Step outside this poignant museum and explore the 9/11 Memorial. The Memorial hosts the largest manmade waterfalls in North America which cascade into reflecting pools in the footprints of the towers. The name of each victim is etched in bronze around the two memorial pools. Spend a silent minute honoring the fallen victims and the survivors.
