My husband and myself were touring the 9/11 memorial with our son, who is a medical student at New York University. This memorial was a very moving experience.
GROUND ZERO MEMORY
This white rose was placed on the name of this person's birthday.
This trip was so amazing. If you're interested in what happened on this day for whatever reason, then this is the trip for you. Even this pear tree has a history.
A moving and very emotional guided tour around 9/11 Memorial and Ground Zero.

A picture of one the damaged fire and ladder trucks, very chilling experence
The most gripping and emotional walking tour we had in New York.
A gripping example of how we will never forget - the birthday of each victim of the 9/11 attack is commemorated by the placing of a rose on their name at 6:00am.
All Birthdays symbolized by a white rose. Beautiful.
In het museum wordt alles duidelijk uitgelegd en kun je alles goed nalezen. Door middel van een gratis app op je telefoon kun je bij veel dingen ook gesproken tekst horen. Zeer informatief.

New World Trade Centre Nr.1
Quite a sight in the morning.
St. Paul's Chapel… looking up, always looking up.
Meet your guide outside of St. Paul’s Chapel. Please note: You will not meet at the 9/11 Memorial or 9/11 Museum.
You'll visit St. Paul Chapel, New York City's oldest standing church. During the tragic days following the event, it served as a shelter for rescue workers to sleep and eat. The church experienced its own miracle on 9/11 when a fallen tree protected the building from the debris of the attacks. Take note of the iron fence on Broadway, which was plastered with missing posters of relatives.
Then, follow your guide to the 9/11 Memorial, where you’ll gain an understanding of the horrific events of 9/11. As you explore the site where the World Trade Center once stood, you’ll be captivated by real firsthand stories of 9/11 from your guide, who has a personal connection with that fateful day in New York City.
The 9/11 Memorial was built to honor the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. The names of every victim of the attack are inscribed in panels alongside twin reflecting pools, spanning nearly an acre with the largest man-made waterfalls in North America. You'll have until 6pm to explore the memorial on your own.
9/11 Museum Upgrade:
You can also upgrade to gain admission to the 9/11 Museum. Your guide will give a brief overview of what you can expect inside the museum, which opened in May 2014. The 9/11 Museum’s 110,000 square feet (10,219 square meters) of exhibition space is located within the archaeological heart of the World Trade Center site. The stories of the 1993 and 2001 bombings of the World Trade Center, and the people affected by the events, are told through multimedia displays, archives, narratives, and a collection of authentic artifacts. The monumental artifacts in the museum present the intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning, and recovery that are central to telling the story of the attacks and the aftermath.
