The National 9/11 Memorial & Museum

Architects Michael Arad and Peter Walker were the winners of an international competition to design the space where the World Trade Center once stood. Their proposal, called Reflecting Absence, consists of two pools that sit in the footprints of the South and North Towers. They're fed by waterfalls (the largest manmade waterfalls in the United States) and surrounded by a forest of nearly 400 trees.

The 9/11 Museum has an exhibition divided into three sections, the Day of 9/11, Before 9/11 and After 9/11. It uses artifacts, photos and an extensively researched and laid out collection to show how the events of 9/11 changed the world.

Well planned Memorial. It’s everything I expected. Buy your tickets in advance. Otherwise, the line can be long.

Very moving. Crowds make it difficult to experience it fully, though; you try to be still and emotional, yet throngs swarm around and past and even through.

I am glad I booked the ticket ahead of time. There was a long line to buy tickets and a line to get into the museum. I was able to enter at anytime. It was really easy.

Excellent museum. Several people we mentioned about the museum said that
they were not ready to see it yet as still close to them. Perhaps in a few years.
It is very touching.
