The National September 11 Memorial Museum serves as the country’s principal institution concerned with exploring the implications of the events of 9/11.

The lives of every victim of the 2001 and 1993 attacks will be commemorated as visitors have the opportunity to learn about the men, women, and children who died. Arrive early to get the free, first-come, first-served basis ticket on Tuesday starting at 4:30pm. Reservation can be made online two weeks in advance of each Tuesday evening starting at 9am.
