  • September 11, 2001 Gallery: Video footage from the morning of September 11, 2001 shows the tragedy of the terrorist attacks and events that changed the world. Students who have no first-hand memory of the day learn about the events that shocked a nation and challenged the world. Artifacts, photographs, audio and video reveal powerful perspectives and personal accounts of the day.
  • Response & Recovery Gallery: From the moment the attacks began, people’s most human desire to help proved stronger than their fears. People put personal safety aside and rushed toward the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, to offer help.
  • Storytelling Gallery: Hear the stories and meet the family members who lost loved ones, survivors, NYPD, FDNY, and PAPD first responders, recovery workers, volunteers, and residents. Listen to their first-person experiences and learn about their inspirational journeys of healing.
  • Remembrance Room: More than two thousand images chosen by family members create a living memorial for visitors to see and feel the vibrancy of the lives of the victims as well as the enormity of the loss.
  • Rebuilding & Remembering Gallery: As months turned into years, the communities and individuals affected by the September 11th attacks experienced many different personal journeys of challenge and healing. Strengthened by the resilience they had found in themselves and each other, they began re-envisioning their lives, rebuilding their communities, and transforming the landscapes of Lower Manhattan, Arlington, Virginia, and Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
  • Service to the World: Inspired by the generosity and kindness they received from all over the world, members of the 9/11 community have changed their own lives by reaching out to help others, developing foundations and service initiatives.
  • Seeds of Service Gallery: Being a responsible citizen in our global community means finding ways, both large and small, to make that community a better place. Visitors are invited to plant a seed of service by supporting an issue, making a donation or contributing their skills to a good cause.
