A Visit to the 9/11 Memorial Museum is a Truly Touching Experience

9_11_Memorial_Museum

The National September 11 Memorial Museum documents the events, the impacts, and the implications of 9/11.  It is a solemn reminder of the day that took the lives of nearly 3,000 people - men, women and children as well as a tribute to all those who selflessly risked their lives to save others.

When visiting NYC, set aside a couple hours to visit the 9/11 Memorial Museum.  The museum, located on the World Trade Center site, puts together a clear picture of the tragic day and stories of loss, compassion and recovery through its artifacts, multimedia displays, narratives and archives. Visitors are also invited to add to the Museum archive by recording their own stories about 9/11, adding their opinion or a remembrance for someone who lost their life during the attack.
