About the 9/11 Tribute Museum

More than just a museum.

The 9/11 Tribute Museum offers visitors the ability to learn factual information about the events, the unprecedented rescue and recovery operations and the rebuilding of both Lower Manhattan and of people’s lives.

The Museum presents videos, artifacts and “Person to Person History,” linking visitors who want to understand the historic events of 9/11 with those who experienced them.

Visitors discover the tremendous spirit of resilience and service that arose after the attacks, and are encouraged to honor the legacy of that spirit through volunteerism and acts of kindness in their own communities. Personal gallery and walking tour experiences are available for student and group visits.

“I think it is really, really important for my colleagues who lost their lives to be able to have a voice and I believe I can be a part of that voice.”

– Dave H, Survivor

9/11 Tribute Museum History

Over 10 Years of History

The 9/11 Tribute Museum, formerly known as the 9/11 Tribute Center, is  a project of the September 11th Families’ Association, a 501(c)3 non profit, began serving the public in 2006.

The September 11th Families’ Association was created by the widows and families of the Fire Department of New York. The Association established a new mission to unite and support all victims of terrorism through communication, representation and peer support. The 9/11 Tribute Museum embodies the need to gather at the World Trade Center site, connecting the people, places and events of February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001 and reflect.
