What's tour about

Hello, dear traveller,

This tour explores the National 9/11 Museum, which is the tribute to the nearly 3 000 victims of September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City, and all those who risked their lives to save others. It further recognizes the thousands who survived and those who acted with extraordinary compassion in the aftermath. It provides educational experiences for visitors and it is a central place for the local community and victims' families.

The Museum itself is a combination of sophisticated design and new technologies that allows visitors to reconstruct narratives on their own, using the artifacts on display. The goal was to create a meaningful tribute to the victims without traumatizing the visitors. Location of The National September 11 Memorial’s twin reflecting pools (squares) mark the footprints of the North and South Towers aboveground. The 9/11 Museum lies below them.
