    Experience Our Nation’s Greatest Tribute to the Victims and Heroes of 9/11

    Dedicated on September 11, 2001—ten years to the day after the infamous attacks—New York’s astounding 9/11 Memorial was near completion on the site of the original World Trade Center. Since 2011, 9 million visitors have come from all over the United States and over 170 nations.*

    In the footprint of the lost towers, two immense reflecting pools and waterfalls offer visitors a tranquil setting to meditate, pray, and remember. Along the edge of the pools, bronze panels feature the name of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

    At the 9/11 Memorial and Museum Visitor Center, you’ll have a chance to share your personal memories of 9/11 and learn more about the tragedy through genuine artifacts and rotating exhibits.

    If you’re planning to travel to New York, be sure to log on to the 9/11 Memorial website to get an overview of the project’s design and history, view construction in real-time, access learning tools, volunteer your time, or make a donation. The 9/11 Memorial website also offers resources to help educators and parents teach K-12 students about the events that took place on 9/11. You can also reserve a free pass to visit the Memorial.
