National September 11 Memorial and Museum

We have been to the 9/11 Memorial a few times but on our most recent visit to New York City it only seemed right to visit the new National September 11 Museum as well. The memorial itself was a designed by Handel Architectures – a New York and San Francisco based firm. They were the winners of the design competition which had thousands of entries. In the end “Reflecting Absence” was the winner. The pools stand where the twin towers once did and around the edges are the names of the victims lost. The 9/11 Museum only opened this year (2014) and includes artefacts associated with the event of 9/11 and tells stories of loss and recovery through them. It was an emotional, moving and incredible visit.
