National 9/11 Memorial & Museum
The National 9/11 Memorial was dedicated on September 11, 2011 (the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks) in a ceremony at Ground Zero for victims' family members — the memorial opened to the public one day later, on September 12th.

Memorial Plaza
As one of the most sustainable, green plazas ever built, The Memorial Plaza (an eight-acre park) features over 400 oak trees surrounding the Memorial pools — and an interactive Memorial Museum honoring the 2,982 people who lost their lives on 9/11/2001 and in the 2/26/1993 World Trade Center bombing. Names of those killed in both attacks are inscribed in bronze on the low wall surrounding the Memorial pool (pictured right).

National 9/11 Memorial Museum
President Obama dedicated The National 9/11 Memorial Museum on May 15, 2014 and it officially opened to the public on May 21, 2014. The museum was built around the Survivor Stairs from the South Tower of the World Trade Center. Upon entering the museum, voices can be heard from Americans around the country echoing where there were on September 11, 2001. Stand in the footprints of NY's two mighty towers in this sacred place of healing and hope.



Visitor Passes
To enter the Memorial, visitors must reserve a pass at 911memorial.org — passes are free and can be reserved up to six months in advance. It is recommended that you reserve online as there are daily limits.

British Garden @ Hanover Square
— Memorial Garden

Hanover Square Google Map

If you're a "Brit" you may want to visit the British Garden at Hanover Square — a Memorial Garden for British victims of 9/11.

England's Prince Harry took part in the official naming ceremony, honoring the 67 British victims of the terrorist attack and planted a tree (magnolia bush) at the garden during his Royal visit in May 2009. The garden is located in Manhattan's Financial District, near Wall Street.

Dedicated in 2005 by Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla (Duchess of Cornwall), the park received it's "royal opening" with a ribbon-cutting from Queen Elizabeth (Queen of England) during her whirlwind visit to New York on July 6, 2010.
