New Tourist Attractions: 9/11 Memorial Museum

Michel Setboun/Corbis

One World Trade Center and 9/11 Memorial Museum, New York City

This spring, the subterranean 9/11 Memorial Museum will educate visitors through multimedia exhibitions and artifacts from the attacks, like the burnt-out Fire Engine 21 and, in the glassed-in entrance pavilion, two 80-foot structural columns from the towers themselves. Meanwhile, (way) above ground, a three-story observation and dining complex occupying floors 100–102 of One World Trade Center will give visitors a bird’s-eye view of the city and beyond. At 1,776 feet (controversial spire included), the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere should be opened by the end of the year. 911memorial.org
