The 9/11 Memorial serves to explore the implications of the events of 9/11, documenting the impact of the events and exploring 9/11's continuing significance.
The 9/11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.
At the memorial you'll find Reflecting Absence - the memorial design that has two pools dug into the footprints of the Twin Towers, symbolizing the loss of innocent lives on September 11th 2001.
Inside the 9/11 Memorial Museum you find a collection of over 10.000 artifacts from Ground Zero, including a section of the antenna from the roof of the North Tower and the remains of a fire truck.
There are three parts of the exhibition, which you can browse: Before 9/11, the Day of 9/11 and After 9/11. It creates a timeline that uses images as well as audio and video. And here you get some insider knowledge of that horrific day. You can explore photos capturing the hyper-real moments of 9/11, watch interviews and hear firsthand accounts of the events and their aftermath, all in the space where the World Trade Center complex once was.
The 9/11 Momorial Museum presents intimate stories of loss, compassion and recovery that are central to telling the story of the 2001 and 1993 attacks and the aftermath. It also explores the global impact of 9/11 and its continuing significance. It's heartbreaking and unforgettable.
