The monumental artifacts of the National September 11 Memorial Museum provide a link to the events of 9/11, while presenting intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning, and recovery that are central to telling the story of the attacks and the aftermath. The Museum’s exhibition tells the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays, archives, narratives and a collection of monumental and authentic artifacts. Visitors are welcome to explore the Museum at their own pace. An average visit can take about two hours. Please note that there is a limit to the number of visitors that the 9/11 Memorial Museum can accommodate at any one time, so guests are only able to exchange their voucher for tickets for the first available entry. Tickets are valid 1 year from date of purchase. A child ticket is required for ages 7-17. The historical exhibition may not be appropriate for visitors younger than 10 years of age. Adults accompanying younger visitors should exercise discretion before entering.More Info Read Less
