The 9/11 Tribute Museum was organized by the September 11th Families' Association as a way for visitors to connect more personally with those directly impacted by the events of September 11th and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
What You Will See
The nearby National 9/11 Museum focuses on the events and global aftermath of September 11th. The Ground Zero Museum Workshop centers on the recovery period immediately following September 11th. The Tribute Museum centers on the personal impact of terrorism. Guided tours of both the museum exhibits and the memorial itself are given by survivors and victim family members to provide an individual and real connection to the tragedy of September 11 and other terrorist attacks. You will see artifacts and hear detailed accounts of the events of that day.
Why You Should Go
The Tribute Museum is very much a living memorial, pairing visitors not just with artifacts and photographs behind glass, but with individuals and survivors whose lives were directly impacted by the September 11th attacks. While the museum is open for a self-guided tour, time your visit to include both a guided exhibition talk as well as a walking tour of the memorial and attack sites. It is a profoundly personal and individualized way to learn more about one of the defining moments in New York City history.
