Visiting The 9/11 Memorial & Museum In New York

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Published 3 years ago

In this video I visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum located at Ground Zero in New York City. The 9/11 Memorial Museum serves as America's principal institution concerned with exploring the implications of the events of 9/11, documenting the impact of those events and exploring 9/11's continuing significance.

The Museum tells the story of 9/11 through interactive technology, archives, narratives and a collection of artefacts. In this video I walk through 110,000 square feet of museum space and pay my respects to the nearly 3000 people that lost their lives on September 11th 2001.

This video was very hard for me to film and viewer discretion is advised.

Thank you for watching AdventureShawn ©

I went to Ground Zero a few years back. Though I didn’t know anyone that lost their life that day, it was very upsetting. I think they did a beautiful job at making sure everyone is remembered. The waterfalls are perfect for the monument. I felt that the water represents all the tears that were shed from everyone around America.
I am proud to be an American and I’m proud to say I live in America. We have the most amazing first responders and soldiers in the world. 🇺🇸

The hardest part about the museum for me was walking into the room with pictures of every single person who sadly passed away.. nothing truly prepared me for that to be able to see their faces smiling and happy it was so hard they all had so much life left to live … I remember some people even chose not to go inside as it was very difficult and heart wrenching it was the only part of the museum that was not allowed to be filmed or have pictures taken, respectfully so . May the victims Rest In Peace for eternity they will never be forgotten!✝️❤️😞

My mom’s co-worker at the time was good friends with Rahma Salie and her husband. They and their unborn baby were on their way to CA for a wedding of another friend. They were on Flight 11, the one that struck first and hit the North Tower. I often wonder how it must have felt to be a passenger on that flight, not knowing what was going to happen, but only that you were hijacked and that possibly someone had been killed. And then you see yourself flying just a little too low, a little too close to… and then you’re gone.

I wonder if any of them had time to realize they were going to hit that building before they did.

I travelled from the UK, and went down to pay my respects to all those that had lost their lives. It’s a beautiful memorial, but heartbreaking. The museum is something that will stay with me always. I will never forget.

With the 20th anniversary coming up my heart is heavy. Ever since I was young I was horrified by what those people had to encounter and what their last moments felt like. My mom and sister took a trip to NY w few years ago and while visiting the museum they said there wasn’t a single person in it that wasn’t crying. RIP to those who lost their lives. I hope you all have an eternity of peace for what you went through🤍

As a new yorker.. I cry every year and I didn't lose anyone I know. Thank you for this video and thank you for caring. Saddens me to see how divided we all are when I grew up in a world so united after 911.. im 30yo now.. and it still hurts me.

What really pissed me off was the last time I was up here I saw someone sitting on the side of the North Tower Fountain on someone's name or names. People can be so disrespectful. Some people treat this site more like a tours attraction then a memorial. RIP to all who lost their lives here that day.

whenever i went to new york, this is one of the things i wanted to do. i went in alone, and it was the most saddest experiences i’ve had. i actually started to cry when walking through it. rest in peace to all the souls who were lost that day.

Well done Shawn the silence in the museum respectful to those who lost their lives that day I can imagine how hard it was being there seeing everything, that is a day in history many of us will never forget

That is a truly beautiful, evocative memorial. Something about the sound of falling water is so conducive to reflection and remembrance. Awesome video, and your considerate attitude is very much appreciated.
It's also really awesome that people are coming to this video to commemorate the memories of their loves ones, perhaps because they cannot travel to the memorial themselves... may they all rest soundly in eternal peace.

I was 26 when it happened and I can still remember it so vividly - where I was when it happened, that feeling of disbelief, of shock and horror. I think it's best to keep it a quieter more reflective vlog, because whatever anyone could say would be so inadequate anyway. RIP to all and my heart goes out to everyone who lost loved ones.
