Description

Learn all about one of the saddest moments in history as you go on a visit to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York. Gain a deeper understanding of the catastrophe that had occurred in September 11, 2001 when a terrorist attack swept the nation with violence and devastation.

Together with an expert local guide, explore the landmarks and affected areas surrounding the World Trade Center that have been given attention during the news reports of the attacks.

First off, come to the St. Paul's Chapel where the friends and families of the victims posted photos of their missing loved ones. See the memorials and the pictures they left as well as the handmade prayers they hung as they prayed for the safety of those who had gone missing.

Then, head over to the Brookfield Place, also known as the World Financial Center. Here, you will be able to learn about the effects of the attack to the country's economy and the citizen's struggle to rebuild the major part of the city. Visit the Eleven Tears Memorial which commemorates the sad fate of the 11 American Express employees who had perished during the attack. Another must-visit is the Winter Garden Atrium which was once torn down by the attack but had been rebuilt once again.

Next, come to the 9/11 Memorial Pools, each one of these pools were built around the footprint of one of the two towers that had collapsed. The names of all the victims of the attack are engraved in each of the pools. Your local guide will give you a personal insight of the tragedy that had occurred there. Visit the Survivor Tree and the Fireman's Memorial which will tell you different stories of bravery and survival.

The last part of the tour leaves you on your own to discover the 9/11 Museum. This museum displays artifacts that were salvaged during the tragedy, countless hours of videos of the statements of those who had lost their loved ones, and some personal items coming from the victims in the city and those from the plane that had crashed on one of the towers.
