Fodor's Review

Beside the reflecting pools on the 9/11 Memorial Plaza is the glass pavilion of the Memorial Museum. The museum descends some 70 feet down to the bedrock the Twin Towers were built on, and displays a poignant, powerful collection of artifacts, memorabilia, photographs, and multimedia exhibits, as well as a gallery that takes visitors through the history of events surrounding both the 1993 and 2001 attacks. There's also a memorial wall with portraits of those who died, pieces of the Towers' structural steel and foundations, and remnants of the "Survivors Stairs," which allowed hundreds of people to escape the buildings that fateful September day. Current access to the museum is through the Memorial Plaza from the intersections of Liberty and Greenwich Streets, Liberty and West, or West and Fulton. The 9/11 Memorial Museum Store (20 Vesey Street; 877/643–4911) sells souvenirs, apparel, books, and other mementos; partial proceeds go to museum operations.
