9/11 Museum, Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island
The 9/11 Memorial Museum is all about honoring & remembering the lives of those who were lost. Located beneath the Memorial plaza, visitors enter the Memorial Museum through a pavilion where two steel “tridents”— remnants of the North Tower’s façade — stand in the building’s atrium. The Museum offers displays of artifacts from the WTC and 9/11 attacks, interactive exhibitions, contemplative areas and programs that convey individual and collective stories relating the experiences of survivors, responders, area residents and eyewitnesses.
You will also be visiting the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island. Board the ferry at Battery Park for your cruise to the islands. The Statue was given as a token of friendship between the people of France and the people of the United States and over the years has grown to include freedom and democracy as well as international friendship. Between 1892 and 1954, Ellis Island welcomed over 12 million immigrants through its doors, and today those family names are listed in their computer system.
