Before the September 11 Memorial & Museum was completed, I never understood why so many tourists wanted to visit what looked like a construction site. However, now that it is fully operational, I have a new appreciation for what the site represents. You can pay your respects to those who lost their lives and learn more about the devastating tragedy. Note: All museum visitors go through a metal detector. Visit their website for Visitor Rules and Regulations.
