The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993. The Memorial's twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in the North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. Architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker created the Memorial design selected from a global design competition that included more than 5,200 entries from 63 nations. The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.

The 9/11 Memorial is located at the site of the former World Trade Center complex and occupies approximately half of the 16-acre site. The Memorial features two enormous waterfalls and reflecting pools, each about an acre in size, set within the footprints of the original Twin Towers. The Memorial Plaza is one of the most eco-friendly plazas ever constructed. More than 400 trees surround the reflecting pools. Its design conveys a spirit of hope and renewal, and creates a contemplative space separate from the usual sights and sounds of a bustling metropolis. Swamp white oak trees create a rustling canopy of leaves over the plaza. This grove of trees bring green rebirth in the spring, provide cooling shade in the summer and show seasonal color in fall. A small clearing in the grove, known as the Memorial Glade, designates a space for gatherings and special ceremonies.

The mission of the 9/11 Memorial Museum, located at the World Trade Center site, is to bear solemn witness to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The Museum honors the nearly 3,000 victims of these attacks and all those who risked their lives to save others. It further recognizes the thousands who survived and all who demonstrated extraordinary compassion in the aftermath. Demonstrating the consequences of terrorism on individual lives and its impact on communities at the local, national, and international levels, the Museum attests to the triumph of human dignity over human depravity and affirms an unwavering commitment to the fundamental value of human life.

This not an invitation to break the law. Just an invitation to break rules !!! to be spontaneous, and to make the most out of every life opportunity :D My friend Jack and I love Art and we were both at the Museum that day and wanted to get some photos/videos. We were not using a flash and there were absolutely no reason security should have stop us from creating content that day. But they did... And so wee had to improvise :D The idea of staying overnight was totally spontaneous and not calculated. We didn't touch or move or damage any piece of Art in the museum and only touched all of them with our eyes :)

We hope the directors of Le Musée D'Orsay won't be too upset to see this video online. Because I love your Museum and deep down I just hope this video makes your museum look fun and bring you guys lots of younger visitors :D

Whatever happens this will always remain one of the best night of my life so... NO REGRETS :D

Thank you if you are reading this
I hope the video inspires you to go have fun todayyyyy !!!!



In which we go to The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, Missouri, and give you some pointers on how to visit an art museum. Seems easy enough, but there are ways to maximize your experience. What are your museum tricks and tips? Let's talk about it in the comments!

Many thanks to The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art for giving us access to their wonderful institution. Their admission is free, but they can only do this because of donations and memberships. So while we joke that you should always find a way to get in for free, you should also consider supporting your local institutions whenever you can and in whatever way you can. This can be through membership, donations, attending events, or volunteering your time. (And if you happen to have an amazing art collection of your own, you should will it to a museum. Really. Your grandchildren won't appreciate it nearly as much as an entire city will for many generations to come.)

How well do you really know the most famous museum in the world?

In the heart of the former home of the King's of France, stands the famous glass pyramids of Pei (extremely controversial in 1988). A few feet away, the artist Anselm Kiefer is installed in the northern staircase of la Cour carrée, for contemporary art also has a place inside the museum. A full program of temporary exhibitions, film projections and concerts makes the Louvre a fascinating place to be.

Thus, the Louvre is « a secular institution resolutely focused on the future ».

Tokyo is loaded with museums, hundreds of them from art to science. If normal museums are a bore to you or you want to try something new, let me tell you about this place! The TOKYO MUSEUM OF SEWAGE!

Here, you'll spend the day learning about Tokyo's sewer system, how it works and even get a chance to go inside the main sewer pipe suspending on a platform over the free flowing raw crap.

Perfect for families -- or maybe for the second or third date with someone special :) either way, Kodaira city is a really relaxing place to hang out, a few really cool cafes and restaurants near the station.

Best of all, this experience is free!
What are you waiting for?

We were at Madame Tussauds in London, and we had to use this opportunity to have our own statues... by whatever means necessary.

It is not the wax statue of Justin Bieber, but it'll make you laugh more. We promise.

Enjoy!

You already KNOW that trans fats are deadly, so I won't go into all of the science as to why trans fats kill you and DAMAGE your cell membranes in your body...leading to all sorts of scary health problems like cancer, obesity, Alzheimer's, heart disease, and more.

Knowing these facts, I'm sure you already know to stay away from foods that contain partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. You've heard that a million times before.

This is the excruciating moment a priceless clock falls from a museum wall and smashes into pieces after a curious visitor touches it and knocks it off its hook.

The CCTV footage was posted online by employees at the National Watch and Clock Museum, in Columbia, Pennsylvania, where the incident took place.

Written alongside the clip is the warning: 'This is why we beg and plead with our visitors to please refrain from touching objects in museums.'

The 3 reasons you should NEVER use Vegetable Oils...

After our Empire State Building adventure, the kids wanted to do something closer to the ground. So we head over to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum on 42nd Street. The museum is home to a wide range of wax figures (constructed out of bees wax and Japan wax). They have everything from Film & TV celebrities, World Leaders, Marvel Super Heroes, Pop Superstars, Sports Figures, Pop Culture, and more.

The cool part is you can get up close and pose for a photo (or video). The kids got to create a wax hand by dipping their hands in hot wax! Then we headed over to the Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience and saw a cool 3D movie with some added sensory effects (4D).

The British Museum is a museum in London dedicated to human history and culture.

Its permanent collection, numbering some eight million works, is amongst the largest and most comprehensive in existence and originates from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.

The British Museum was established in 1753, largely based on the collections of the physician and scientist Sir Hans Sloane. The museum first opened to the public on 15 January 1759 in Montagu House in Bloomsbury, on the site of the current museum building. Its expansion over the following two and a half centuries was largely a result of an expanding British colonial footprint and has resulted in the creation of several branch institutions, the first being the British Museum (Natural History) in South Kensington in 1887.

Some objects in the collection, most notably the Elgin Marbles from the Parthenon, are the objects of intense controversy and of calls for restitution to their countries of origin.

The web offers a myriad ways to extend the museum experience for visitors and we can help you exploit them. Get in touch with us to
  • Create multimedia games and activities to spark the pre-visit interest
  • Develop interactive content for post-visit research
  • Design learning guides and lesson plans for teachers to use in their classrooms
Check out the online game we developed for the wonderful Bubbalogna exhibit in the Children's Discovery Museum in San Jose, CA.  

Interactive Content for Learning

Gone are the days when teaching equated to a classroom of students listening to the teacher talk. The famed Russian philosopher and educator Vygotsky said that the mind emerges through interaction with the environment. Current technology affords us many ways to create learning environments that help students visualize information, play with it, and create their own meaning. 
At nGinE designs, we challenge ourselves to go beyond the eye-catching graphics and cool animations to create interactive content with a focus on the learning outcome.
