The 9/11 Museum and Memorial is one of the most important sights to see in New York City. Our World Trade Center Tour brings you to see the site of one of the greatest tragedies in American History. The Museum commemorates the almost 3,000 lives who were lost on 9/11 and on February 26th, 1993; when the World Trade Center was bombed. See the exhibits at the Museum, and learn what it was like to be there. Our tour guides will take you to see the walls with the names of those who were lost. You can spend additional time here at the end of our tour.
The Memorial’s two reflecting pools are almost an acre in size and house the largest man-made waterfalls in North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. We will show you the Fireman’s Memorial, honoring over 400 first responders who lost their lives during 9/11.
The 9/11 Memorial and Museum are just 2 of the stops on our guided tours through downtown Manhattan. You can see a number of important locations throughout your tour, and even visit the One World Observatory.
“The National September 11 Memorial Museum is a place for understanding ourselves and the world in which we live. It is a place for all of us, set within the foundations of the World Trade Center—at the epicenter of Ground Zero—to begin to imagine together the kind of world we want to build for the generations that will follow us.”
