Earlier this month, the 9/11 Memorial Museum launched an online collection of stories adapted from the special exhibition Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden

This digital exhibition reconstructs what the U.S. government knew about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda in the years prior to the 9/11 attacks, and the 10 years of inter-agency efforts that led to the raid on bin Laden's Abbottabad compound. These stories include compelling artifacts from Revealed along with video interviews with key decisionmakers and those reflecting on 9/11 and other terrorist acts.

The supporting lesson plans provide context on the repercussions of 9/11 and changes in counterterrorism efforts internationally in the decade following the attacks.
