More than 4 million people have visited the National September 11 Memorial at the World Trade Center since it opened last summer on the 10th anniversary of the terror attacks, the Associated Press reports.

“More than 4 million people visiting the 9/11Memorial in less than one year is a remarkable milestone," said 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels. "It reflects the deeply held belief of the importance of honoring victims of the terrorist attacks that shocked the world almost 11 years ago. These visitors who come to this site and walk this sacred ground are helping to preserve the memory of every man, woman, and child taken from us too soon."

Visitors have come from all 50 states and 170 countries.  Passes to visit the 9/11 Memorial are free and can be reserved here.
