Highlights

  • Experience a powerful reminder of the loss of life that occurred at the twin reflecting pools, each nearly an acre in size. They feature the largest man-made waterfalls in North America and are inscribed with the names of the nearly 3,000 victims.
  • See the historic "Survivor's Stairs", a remnant of the staircase through which hundreds escaped with their lives.
  • Examine the background of the attacks, the story of what happened on 9/11, and the aftermath and continuing implications in the historical exhibition.
  • Learn about some the individual victims and their stories and see portraits of the nearly 3,000 men, women, and children who were killed in the attacks in the memorial exhibition.
  • Enter the dramatic Foundation Hall, containing the "slurry wall", a surviving retaining wall of the original World Trade Center, as well as the 36-foot-high "Last Column", covered with mementos, memorial inscriptions and missing posters.
