NYC: 9/11 Museum

By  |  1 Comment

Last year when I visited my brother in NYC they were starting the process of building the 9/11 Museum and had just finished the Memorial Plaza. The museum had just opened up a few weeks before I got to NYC, and I knew I wanted to visit before I left NYC.

Admission is free from 5pm-close on Tuesdays. I showed up on Tuesday and didn’t even realize this until I got there. But, if you do want tickets to get admission into the museum right away get there by 4 or else you may have to wait until 7pm to get in, as they stagger admissions.

The museum sets out to tell the story of 9/11 through a collection of narratives and archives. The museum documents the chronological events of the September 11 attack and the aftermath of those events.I didn’t take many pictures inside, as I was trying to take every thing in. It was a great museum, but extremely emotional, as I expected. If you get the chance, I would go.

    Thanks for sharing! If I ever go to NYC, I want to visit the museum, too.
