The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is the principal institution for examining the implications and documenting the impact of the events on 11th September 2001. You will see past, present and the continuing significance of this important day in history.
The Historical Exhibition tells the story of the events on 11 September 2001, from the normality of a late summer day to the horrors of the attack. Visitors are going to learn through artefacts, images, video, first-person testimony and real-time audio recordings about the events at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and the story of Flight 93. The exhibition explores in detail the background leading up to the events and how the collective sense of history changed forever: To a world before and after 9/11.
The Memorial Exhibition, which is named In Memoriam, commemorates the lives of those who perished on 11 September 2001 and 26 February 1993 and provides visitors with the opportunity to learn about the men, women and children who died. Family photographs, oral remembrances and rotating selections of personal artefacts commemorate the fallen in an intimate and personal way.
In the Foundation Hall, a room of massive scale, you are going to find both the Last Column and the Slurry Wall, original elements from the World Trade Center. The Last Column is covered with mementos, memorial inscriptions and posters, placed by ironworkers, rescue workers and others.
Prior to or after visiting the Memorial, visitors enter the Museum through a pavilion located between the two Memorial reflecting pools and gradually descend to the bedrock level of the Museum which contains the remnant foundations of the original World Trade Center.
The names of 2,983 victims of the attacks are inscribed in bronze panels surrounding two enormous reflecting pools set in the footprints of the Twin Towers.
