9/11 Tribute Museum
Mon–Sat 10am–6pm, Sun 10am–5pm
92 Greenwich St., New York City, New York
The events of September 11th, 2001, shook not just New York City but the whole world, and served as a historic turning point that changed the entire course of the early 21st century. The 9/11 Tribute Museum is a must-do for anyone who wants to hear vivid, eye-witness accounts of the events of that pivotal day. Visitors can tour the museum independently and take a walking tour around the 9/11 Memorial Plaza, led by a guide with a direct connection to the events. For an even more comprehensive experience, combine a visit to the Tribute Museum with a trip to the separate and larger-scale National September 11 Memorial & Museum, which offers a broader overview of the tragic day.

9/11 Tribute Museum & Memorial Walking Tour
A must-do! So very informative and respectful of all that the 911 site represents. Kimberly, our guide, shared an immense amount of information in our time together. She spoke slowly and clearly, sharing personal stories that will have a lasting impact on all of us. We will definitely recommend this tour to all of our friends and family visiting NYC.
Loved hearing Gordon's...
