9/11 Memorial Museum

When the two towers of the World Trade Center collapsed in 2001, America changed. The 9/11 Memorial Museum shows the dramatic history of the terrorist attack and the heroic attempt of the New York Fire Department to save as many people as possible. The museum stands directly at Ground Zero, next to the two holes that mark the former World Trade Center. In the museum you can see huge steel parts from the destroyed twin towers, broken emergency vehicles of the fire department and other objects. On a guided tour, the stories behind the exhibits become even more moving.
