Explore the Power of Place with Virtual Field Trips
At a time when we are all looking for meaningful ways to connect and educate online, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum is excited to announce the addition of two live virtual field trips for students.
We gathered on the 9/11 Memorial plaza earlier this month to commemorate the 19th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks.
Family members, survivors, and first responders embraced one another and left tributes in honor of their loved ones on the Memorial plaza. The following day, we reopened the 9/11 Memorial Museum after a six-month closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Throughout the month of September, various news outlets published informative, engaging articles about the work of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and the unique challenges of commemorating 9/11 during a global health crisis.
