National September 11 Memorial

New York, New York

Two square fountains now lie at the base of where the twin towers stood before they were destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001. Surrounding them, on bronze parapets, are the names of the victims who died on that horrific day. The 9/11 Memorial Museum has a vast collection of 39,000 objects, as well as oral histories and personal artifacts donated by family members who wish to memorialize the ones they lost. Together, these memorials are a tribute to the past and a place of hope for the future.
