The National 9/11 Memorial Museum serves as the principal institution for examining the implications of the events of 9/11, documenting the impact of those events and exploring the continuing significance of September 11, 2001 in New York City.
The Museum’s 110,000 square feet of exhibition space is located within the archaeological heart of the World Trade Center site – telling the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays, archives, narratives and a collection of monumental and authentic artifacts. The lives of every victim of the 2001 and 1993 attacks will be commemorated as visitors have the opportunity to learn about the men, women and children who died.
The largest of the spaces within the Museum is Foundation Hall, with ceilings ranging from 40 to 60 feet. Here, you can find the slurry wall – a retaining wall originally built to hold back the Hudson River – and the remnants of cutoff box columns that once formed the exterior structure of the Twin Towers.
