Now that the tenth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center has been observed, you can now visit the moving 9/11 Memorial in New York City, formerly “Ground Zero” at the World Trade Center site.

Reservations Needed – Entry is Free
Advance visitor passes to the 9/11 Memorial are required. Visitors must reserve advance passes for a specific date and time. Visitor passes are free and available through the Memorial’s online reservation system. Reserve your passes here.

The pass system was set up to ensure that the dignity of the space is maintained and not over-crowded. It remains a place of reflection and healing. Family members of those who died in the attacks will still be coming to mourn their losses.

What You Will See
The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.

You will see twin reflecting pools with the largest man-made waterfalls in North America. They flow down into the cavity left by the removal of debris from the destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers.

You will see the names of every person who died in the attacks inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools.

More Information
The memorial has an extensive website which describes the 9/11 memorial and how you can visit the location.
