Our guide to 9/11 Memorial Museum Admission Ticket
The 9/11 Memorial Museum is a moving tribute of remembrance and honour to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the multiple terror attacks on September 11, 2001 as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.
Architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker created the Memorial design selected from a global design competition that included more than 5,200 entries from 63 nations. The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools, each nearly an acre in size and featuring the largest manmade waterfalls in North America, are set within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.
The museum itself is located below the reflecting pools and features first-person accounts of what happened on that September morning in 2001 and multi-media displays examining the background of the attacks, the story of what happened on 9/11 and the aftermath and continuing implications of the attacks. Enter the dramatic Foundation Hall, containing the "slurry wall", a surviving retaining wall of the original World Trade Center, as well as the 36-foot-high "Last Column", covered with mementos, memorial inscriptions and missing posters and see the historic "Survivor's Stairs", a remnant of the staircase through which hundreds escaped with their lives.
The memorial exhibition called In Memoriam, honours those that lost their lives that day in 2001 as well as the people who were killed during the World Trade Center 1993 bombing. Learn about some the individual victims and their stories and see portraits of the nearly 3,000 men, women, and children who were killed in the attacks in the memorial exhibition.
