The National September 11 Memorial & Museum (also known as the 9/11 Memorial & Museum) is a memorial and museum in New York City commemorating the September 11, 2001 attacks, which killed 2,977 people, and the 1993 World Trade Centre bombing, which killed six. The memorial is located at the World Trade Centre site, the former location of the Twin Towers that were destroyed during the September 11 attacks. The two reflecting pools stand on the original foot prints of both towers, with the names of all the people killed cut into the sides. The museum is located underground, beneath the pools, where you can see the foundations of the original towers, personal positions that were found and have been donated belonging to the victims on that day of the attacks, one of the fire engines that survived the attacks and part of one of the planes that plunged into one of the towers.
The museum offers emotional insights into the victims and their family’s, the suicide jumpers and how the entire world was effected.
