The National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a nonprofit organization located at the World Trade Center in New York City, bears solemn witness to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The organization honors the 2,983 victims of these attacks, those who risked their lives to save others and all who demonstrated extraordinary compassion in the aftermath through commemoration, exhibitions and educational programs that tell the story of the attacks and explore the continuing global impact of 9/11 and the consequences of terrorism on individual lives and communities.

The 9/11 Memorial remembers and honors the 2,983 people who were killed in the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The design, created by Michael Arad and Peter Walker, consists of two reflecting pools formed in the footprints of the original Twin Towers and a plaza of trees. The 9/11 Memorial Museum displays monumental artifacts linked to the events of 9/11, while presenting intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning, and recovery that are central to telling the story of the 2001 and 1993 attacks and the aftermath.

Our newest special exhibition “K-9 Courage,” honoring the four-legged heroes of 9/11, is now open. After 9/11, K-9 teams searched the wreckage of the crash sites for survivors and victims, and they comforted responders and the families of victims. When images of the dogs at work appeared in news coverage, they brightened 9/11’s dark aftermath. Combining photographs of the dogs during their service with portraits of them later in life and artifacts, “K-9 Courage” tells the stories of these extraordinary working dogs and disaster-response veterinary teams. www.911memorial.org/dogs

Every artifact in the 9/11 Memorial Museum has a story to tell. Members of FDNY Engine Company 21 were dispatched to the Twin Towers from their firehouse on East 40th Street. They parked their rig on Vesey Street under a pedestrian overpass. The firefighters reported to the North Tower where they pried open the lobby doors of an elevator, freeing a woman who had been trapped inside. Then they proceeded to the 24th floor in one of the only elevators known to have remained operational after hijacked Flight 11 hit the building. This truck is a reminder of what first responders did that day and honors the heroic men and women lost. https://911memorial.io/3afu1VV

After 9/11, motorcyclist Ted Sjurseth painted his Harley Davidson to commemorate the attacks. He painted the bike to resemble an American flag with a Statue of Liberty motif and the names of fallen first responders painted on the back. The bike also has almost 40 handwritten messages and signatures. In November 2001, Ted organized the first annual America’s 9/11 Ride, in which hundreds of motorcyclists travel to the three attack sites, starting at the Flight 93 crash site in Pennsylvania, stopping at the Pentagon, and concluding at the World Trade Center. Ted donated this bike to the 9/11 Memorial Museum and can be seen on view in Tribute Walk. https://911memorial.io/2RfVmhQ

This flag became a symbol of resilience when three FDNY firefighters raised it at Ground Zero on the afternoon of Sept. 11, 2001. The flag was taken down that evening, and the following day a different flag was hoisted in its place. The whereabouts of the original flag remained a mystery for nearly 15 years. It was returned to its home at Ground Zero and is on view in the 9/11 Memorial Museum. https://911memorial.io/2pISHkJ

In the rubble, Ground Zero workers discovered a tree charred, battered with snapped roots. Originally planted on the World Trade Center Plaza in the 1970s, the Callery pear tree was removed from the site, brought back to life and given the name The Survivor Tree. It returned home and was planted on the Memorial plaza in December 2010. https://911memorial.io/36AOtOy

HI.MY BRETHEREN.AM SO GREATFULL TO SPEAK ABOUT THE LAST TIME THAT WE LOST OUR BEAURTYFUL TOWER THAT BREAK IN 2001.WE LOS
visited back in August couldn't afford to go inside though :D #AmericaFirst
I am sorry, I had all the sympathy for the 9/11 victims & their families however with the state of the city under the current mayor deBLABio & current senator chuckie, seems they have no regards for what happened to citizens of US.. no more emails
I visited the museum and memorial on Tuesday December 10, 2019. I have visited a few times, and learn something new each time. I took a guided tour with a friend who was visiting for the first time; our tour guide was an amazing guy named Will, and he gave the best tour. He was very down to earth, extremely compassion, and shared the story of September 11th (including how his own family was impacted by missing Flight 175) in a real world way. I hope that Will can be commended for his dedication to his work at the museum and memorial.
My son first trip to NY and all he wanted to see was the 911 Memorial. 🙏
Had a tour yesterday with Jasmine... it was incredibly moving!!! She was clearly extensively educated on the events and her soothing voice added to the mood and tone of the visit. She was very well spoken. I would highly recommend booking a tour with her! The tour was very worth the extra money as opposed to walking around on your own.
