The memorial commemorates the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The names of nearly 3000 victims are engraved in bronze on the Memorial so the visitors can pay their respects.
It was opened to the public on September 11, 2011 – the day which marked the 10th anniversary of the tragic event. The memorial is situated on the former location of the Twin Towers.
The 9/11 Museum, which is a part of the complex, introduces its visitors to the 9/11 events from the factual side but also provides authentic stories, artefacts and memories of the victims.
Respectful behaviour is expected.
