September 11, 2001 was indeed a horrific day for the United States of America. Thousands of lives were lost during the events in New York City, Washington D.C. and in Pennsylvania.
The 9/11 Memorial & Museum in New York City is dedicated to remembering the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives in 2001 and in the World Trade Center bombing in 1993.
Honoring the lives of those who were lost is at the heart of our mission. Occupying eight of the 16 acres at the World Trade Center, the Memorial is a tribute to the past and a place of hope for the future.
The 9/11 Memorial Museum serves as the country’s principal institution concerned with exploring the implications of the events of 9/11, documenting the impact of those events and exploring 9/11’s continuing significance.
On Sunday, April 22, 2018 the sixth annual 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk and Community Day will take place in lower Manhattan. This fundraiser is in support of the daily operations of the memorial and museum.
