The 9/11 Museum and Memorial at the World Trade Center complex in lower Manhattan, NYC, commemorate those lost in the 9/11 attacks of 2001 on New York, Washington, DC, and Shanksville, PA. Somewhat controversial in its realization of these watershed events, it is at once a deeply moving tribute to those lost and a disturbing reminder of this traumatic day and its aftermath. Only artifacts in the Foundation Hall may be photographed, much in the main hall is too personal and treads a fine line between the need to relate the events and the wishes of many of the victims' families for privacy in their grief.
