9/11 Memorial Tour and Priority Entrance 9/11 Museum
About this experience
Everyone can tell where they were during the September 11, 2001 attacks. An incident that shook the whole planet, the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center altered the path of recent history taking us in the new century, with new challenges.
Come to Ground Zero and get a wider understanding of 9/11, the impact it had on the city (and the world!) and the hard struggle underwent in New York City to move forward from that day.
Our professional and local guide will lead you not just inside the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, but also around the areas and landmarks around the World Trade Center that played a key role in news reports after the attacks.
We will begin the tour at St. Peter’s Church from where you walk over to St. Paul’s Chapel with a closer insight into the tragedy happened here. This was the place where friends and relatives came to pray, offer assistance and await news in the immediate aftermath of the attacks; as shown by the hand-drawn cards and memorials, personal memorabilia and photographs that still we can find here, hang on the walls.
We are going to see the steel memorial cross, the striking 9/11 Memorial Pools, each one built in the footprint of each tower, and engraved with the names of all those who died in the attack. Our guide will take you to the Fireman’s Memorial and the Survivor Tree to tell you the unbelievable stories of heroism and loss that occurred right where you stand.
On the final part of this tour, we’ll let you manage on your own. The 9/11 Museum is a very well curated space which displays artifacts retrieved from the event, alongside innumerable personal accounts. It’s a really touching visit, best understood in at your own pace in silence.
Anyway, it's not like going on your own: we have pre-reserved your museum tickets, so you’ll skip long lines to gain quick access.
We like to keep our groups small for this tour to secure a level of intimacy and peace that’s fitting for this kind of tour. We choose only the best local guides to give your experience a more intimate feel, giving the 9/11 Memorial and its surrounds a more human atmosphere.
