The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is a place of remembrance honoring those who perished in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The 9/11 Memorial consists of two massive pools set within the original footprints of the Twin Towers with 30-foot waterfalls cascading down their sides. The nearly 3,000 names of the men, women, and children killed in the attacks are inscribed into bronze parapets surrounding the twin Memorial pools. The 9/11 Memorial is open daily from 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. and is free to the public. The 9/11 Memorial Museum displays monumental artifacts linked 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 2001 and 1993 attacks and the aftermath. It also explores the global impact of 9/11 and its continuing significance. The 9/11 Memorial Museum is open Sun - Thu, 9:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., last entry at 6:00 p.m. and Fri and Sat, 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m., last entry at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are required. Open Daily.

The little tidbits in understanding the foundation for the memorial is totally worth it. For those who were very young, adds a bit of learning to help them.

You simply cannot walk through this museum without a lump in your throat. That being said, it is very well done and respectful. There were a ton of people when we visited, but everyone was fairly quiet and reverent. You do need to set aside...More

This is the one of the most impressive museums I have ever been to. Apart from the stunning design, the actual content is both fascinating and shocking. A sobering experience and one that's worth every penny (and I'm here on a backpackers budget). You can...More

I went with my family to the 9/11 memorial and I have to say it had a profound effect on us - the whole experience is very well thought out and hits the right tone - it is suitably respectful to the victims of 9/11,...More

Terrible day for sure, but if anything can energize the American spirit it can be found here. A must see ... plan on at least three hours to see everything.

This place was very moving! Such a great way to remember the horrific event, honour those who passed on and celebrate the great bravery of those who were involved. Glad they had tissues available as I needed more than one

There are better places to go, avoid this place. Its a real mood killer and lets face it, 9/11 was an inside job which makes this place even more ugly.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.

There's a subway map you can download on your phone. The subways run on a colored system and it was easier for me after I downloaded it. We also just asked the person down in the subway system. It never hurts to ask!

There's a subway station at Grand Central Station. Looks like you can take the 4-5-6 Train, and switch to the L Train at 14th St/Union Station terminal. Should be about 20 minutes in total. Taxi might be a better option... More
