As we look forward to what 2024 has in store for us, we also look back to see what we’ve achieved over the years. At the & Museum, remembering those killed on 9/11 is at the core of our mission, and in 2004 we began construction on the National September 11 Memorial & Museum to do just that. In less than three minutes, see how we rebuilt Ground Zero into a space to remember, honor, educate, and inspire. Created by EarthCam.

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum had the honor of hosting The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey Police Department recruits for their badge and ID ceremony. Standing in front of the Last Column, the recruits recited the Oath of Office, honoring the legacy of those who served before them. The Last Column represents an important part of PAPD history, as the "37" spray painted on its side remembers the number of PAPD officers killed on 9/11. Following their visit to the , a wreath was placed outside on the to honor those who gave their all to save others.

We are grateful for the partnership of the PAPD in keeping our site safe and our shared commitment to ensuring the acts of courage and selflessness displayed on 9/11 are etched forever into the and conveyed throughout the Museum.

The is thrilled to share that our memorial motorcycle installation is officially open! In memorializing those killed on 9/11, people often expressed themselves through the things that mattered most to them. Some riders and bike builders found motorcycles to be a natural medium for paying tribute. Sometimes, these bikes were dedicated to the entirety of the loss. Other times, they honored specific individuals or groups, including first responders and military members. The resulting motorcycles reflect a deeply personal connection to 9/11, literally carrying its memory across the American landscape as they ride by.

The memorial motorcycle installation is included with your ticket to the – come visit! Purchase tickets here: https://ow.ly/GRIE50QkPgu

Soldiers, sailors, Department of Defense personnel, and federal employees who assisted with the rescue and recovery efforts at the Pentagon and in Shanksville, PA are now eligible to enroll in the World Trade Center Health Program. Read more about this development: https://ow.ly/C6zZ50QkMQQ

At the , our efforts take inspiration from the various affected communities in the U.S. and U.K. Together, we remain committed to demonstrating the dangers of extremism and the sanctity of every life taken in acts of mass violence.
