1. 9/11 Tribute Museum Guided Tour

The 9/11 Tribute Museum is the project of the September 11th Families’ Association, a group that aims to pair those looking to learn more about the events on September 11, with those who experienced it first hand and survived.

Unlike the 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s official tour, the tribute museum’s guided tour of the memorial takes viewers through the memorial lead by survivors, rescue workers, family members, civilian volunteers, and Lower Manhattan residents, all who experienced the tragic events first hand. Participants will hear the guide’s story about the events, as well as the aftermath, and learn about the history of the Towers.

The tour last approximately 75-minutes, so walking shoes are recommended.

*Tickets for the tour on 9/11’s anniversary are currently unavailable, but are still available every other day.
