Revealed: The Hunt For Bin Laden Online

This online collection of stories was adapted from the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s special exhibition Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden. The supporting lesson plans explore what the U.S. government knew about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda in the years prior to the 9/11 attacks, and what our government was doing during the nearly 10-year period between 9/11 and the 2011 raid to find bin Laden.

Response Art from Inside the Collection

In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, people around the United States and the world struggled with how to comprehend and respond to the attacks. Many turned to artmaking to honor the victims and mentally process the tragedy. This gallery showcases sculpture, painting, video, drawing, and collage works that offer a lens through which to interpret the events surrounding the attacks.

Mission to Remember: Conserving Objects

From handwritten notes on scraps of paper to massive beams of World Trade Center steel, each item in the Museum's collection has a unique story to contribute to the narrative of 9/11. Furthermore, our conservators face the challenge of preserving significantly damaged objects whose meaning is often found in the damage itself. Learn more about our conservation efforts in our Mission to Remember video series.
