The names of every victim of the attack are inscribed in panels alongside twin reflecting pools, spanning nearly an acre with the largest man-made waterfalls in North America. You’ll have until 6pm to explore the memorial on your own.

You can also upgrade to gain admission to the 9/11 Museum. Your guide will give a brief overview of what you can expect inside the museum, which opened in May 2014. The 9/11 Museum’s 110,000 square feet (10,219 square meters) of exhibition space is located within the archaeological heart of the World Trade Center site.
