9/11 Memorial & Museum:
New York, NY

by | Dec 20, 2017 | 0 comments

There is deafening silence in the exhibition rooms at the 9/11 Tribute Museum. The mood is somber, and visitors can’t help but feel a pride in all the people who came to aid those in need, and sadness for all those who lost their lives in the process.

The 9/11 Tribute Museum was designed extremely well. The exhibitions are divided into sections and categories, with some pieces of the original structure displayed within the 110,000 square foot museum. The museum begins from the planning and building of the towers and continues on to 9/11 and beyond through interactive technology, archives, narratives and a collection of artifacts.

There are sections of witness encounters; there is a memorial section, a Historical exhibition, and a rebirth section.  No flash photography is allowed in the museum and in certain sections no photography is allowed at all.

The mangled fire trucks and the actual Vesey Street “Survivors Stairs” used by many to escape the towers make the events feel very real. The many Docents around the museum share information and several share personal experiences of how they or their loved ones were in the tower on that fateful day. The many personal accounts and recording draw people in and you can’t help but realize that the world will never be the same since 9/11.

Outside the Museum are the two Memorial Pools with names of all the victims inscribed on the sides. There is no entrance fee to see the pools which are large and square shaped. Their water flows downward, not upward. It has a symbolic feel to it, commemorating all those brave men and women who perished on 9/11.
