Ten years ago, the world watched in awe as the events of September 11, 2001 unfolded on American soil. The years that followed brought with it an array of emotions, ranging from fear to extreme patriotism. On the 10th anniversary of this tragic event, all Americans will have a place to remember those victims and survivors in solace and peace.

On September 12th, 2011 the 9/11 Memorial will open to the public. Located at the former World Trade Center complex, in Lower Manhattan, the memorial will serve as a place of remembrance for those who lost their lives in the terror attacks of 9/11/01 and 02/26/93.  If you are visiting the 9/11 Memorial in New York, there are some features of the memorial that you should be sure to experience.

The main exhibit of the memorial are the two reflecting pools and oversized waterfalls. Each pool is located in the heart of the World Trade Center complex, where the Twin Towers once stood. The pools are surrounded by walls displaying the names of those lost in the terror attacks. Massive amounts of trees are a major feature of the memorial. Some of the trees were taken from locations in Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania that were also affected by the 9/11 attacks. The trees were included in the memorial as a representation of survival and new life.The memorial also shares the experience of survivors and first responders through the interactive 9/11 timeline. Their stories are shared through a series of video, voice recordings and photos.

Next year, on the 11th anniversary of the attacks, the 9/11 Memorial Museum will make it's debut. The Museum will feature the original facade of Tower 1, an artifacts exhibit, and a Wall of Faces.

Due to the expectation of large crowds during the initial year of the memorial, it is highly suggested to register for a pass here.
