Good to know

It's mostly underground. The museum's entry ramp leads to a series of cavernous rooms extending 70ft deep to the former foundations of the World Trade Center.
It holds 10,000 artifacts, which include wrecked emergency vehicles, 911 phone calls, pictures and moving testimonies from victims, and media coverage from the event.
Queues are long (especially in summer) and it's wise to buy tickets in advance.
Tissue boxes have been strategically placed around the museum for a reason, prepare for an emotionally charged experience.
The use of cell phones is prohibited.
Arrive earlier than the time booked on your ticket as they're strict about the amount of people that can enter at one time. If you're late you might miss out.
It features major relics from Ground Zero, including the ‘Survivors' Staircase', used by many workers as they fled, the slurry wall that survived intact and became a symbol of resistance, and the ‘Last Column', which marked the end of the recovery period.
Security measures are strict and you'll be obliged to pass through a screening process of all your belongings.
Free films and talks on this subject are available, check the website for exact times.

The inside story

The 9/11 memorial is an inspiring and affecting experience no New York visitor should miss. It consists of two recessed waterfall pools set in the footprints of the fallen twin towers, each pool surrounded by bronze plates featuring the names of those killed in the tragedy of 11 September 2001 (and the explosion of 1993).

Standing alongside a 30,000sq ft (2787sq m) pool, you watch water descend 30ft (9m) in gentle silver strands against a dark Virginia granite wall before disappearing out of sight into a smaller, deeper aperture. Your eyes are drawn constantly downwards, but then back up to the void in a reflective cycle. The memorial is aptly named “Reflecting Absence.”

Around the pools, 2,243 swamp white oaks have been planted to create a calm green space that will rise to 80ft (24m) and last up to 350 years. Among them, you’ll find the Survivor Tree, a callery pear that that was recovered burned and broken from the rubble with just one limb still alive. It lives on as part of the memorial: one of many poignant details that make this such an unforgettable spectacle.

9/11 Memorial Museum

The 9/11 Memorial Museum, located in the heart of the World Trade Center site, explores and documents the implications of the events of 9/11 through interactive technology, archives, narratives and a collection of artifacts.
