The 9/11 Memorial

Designed by Daniel Libeskind, the 9/11 Memorial honors the nearly 3,000 people that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Each person’s name is inscribed in bronze around one of the twin memorial pools located on the 16 acres of the site of the World Trade Centers.  The twin reflecting pools are each about an acre in size and house the largest manmade waterfalls in the United States.

At the 9/11 Memorial, you can explore the beautifully designed grounds and the exhibit, which has artifacts, stories, and photos of the history and significance of that day and its aftermath. You can interact with timelines and hear stories of first-person accounts from survivors, first responders and witnesses.
