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 names of every person who died in the terrorist attacks of February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001 are inscribed in bronze around the twin memorial pools. The 9/11 Memorial Museum will include a memorial exhibition dedicated to commemorating the unique life of each victim. Learn more about the exhibition and how you can contribute photos and remembrances of your loved one.
