Experience Downtown New York City

National 9/11 Memorial

Honoring the lives of those who were lost, the Memorial occupies eight of the 16 acres at the World Trade Center. The Memorial is a tribute to the past and a place of hope for the future.

At the 9/11 Memorial, visitors have the unique opportunity to witness the World Trade Center rebuilding taking place around them - including the construction of 1 World Trade Center, which is now the tallest building in New York City. During this interim period of construction, access to the 9/11 Memorial is managed by a timed reservation system for both individuals and groups.
