The 9/11 Tribute Museum allows students to explore the factual events of 9/11, the unprecedented rescue and recovery operations, the rebuilding of Lower Manhattan, the tremendous spirit of resilience and service that arose after the attacks, and how we can grow through volunteerism and acts of kindness in our own communities.
Guided and Self-Guided 9/11 Tribute Museum Visits
Students will tour the museum’s galleries on their own or with one of our guides to experience the impact of 9/11 through the stories of those who were there, focusing on learning through primary sources: videos, artifacts, images and oral histories. After touring the galleries, students may speak with a 9/11 Tribute Museum guide who will share their personal 9/11 experiences, answer questions and engage students in dialogue about the future.
Guided Tour of the 9/11 Memorial
Go on a guided tour of the 9/11 Memorial and hear our guides’ powerful stories of their experiences during and after the attacks. They share insight on the history of 9/11 and the Memorial pools, the Survivor Tree and the new buildings on the site.
We, as a group of eight ranging from ages 9 - 65 years old went on the walking tour. Definitely include this in your visit to the 9/11 memorial. Our guides, Joan and Pete painted such a real and vivid picture of the terrorist attack that brought NY to it’s knees and the world together as we watched the horror unfold on that unforgettable day and the weeks, months and years to follow.
She told the story so well and with her heart and true feelings. I was very humbled this day. I had so many emotions flowing through me, sad, uplifting and anger. I will never forget the experience of going there.
I can't express how well done this museum depicted events leading up to that dreadful day, emotions of that day and how we recovered as a nation. Volunteers were fantastic and passionate about the museum and NYC!
A once in a life time opportunity to meet people with a personal link to 9/11. I honestly would go to New York for the sole purpose of revisiting the Tribute [Museum]. So different to any other experience. So much respect.
A beautifully organized, well thought out tribute to a day that the world won't forget. You walk throughout the [museum] with goosebumps in awe as you relive the events of September 11th....
It was an unexpected somber joy. The talent and gift of [our guide] captured this moment in history in a way that made you feel you were personally present, sharing every emotional step. [He] reminded me how proud I am to be an American. Don't miss this creative presentation. You'll walk away a different person.
