Upon arrival, visit THE NATIONAL SEPTEMBER 11 MEMORIAL
This Memorial is a
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, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people
killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.
The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade
waterfalls *in the North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood.
The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels
edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign
attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.
Lunch will be on your own at one of the many restaurants within walking distance of the Memorial.

The National September 11 Memorial Museum serves as the country’s principal institution for

exploring the continuing significance of September 11, 2001.
The Museum’s 110,000 square feet of exhibition space is located within the archaeological
heart of the World Trade Center site—telling the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays,
archives, narratives and a collection of monumental and authentic artifacts. The lives of every
victim of the 2001 and 1993 attacks will be commemorated as visitors have the opportunity
to learn about the men, women, and children who died.
The monumental artifacts of the Museum provide a link to the events of 9/11, while presenting
intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning, and recovery that are central to telling the
story of the attacks and the aftermath.
