The collection also includes photographs, audio and video, personal effects and memorabilia, expressions of tribute and remembrance, recorded testimonies and digital files and websites related to the history of the World Trade Center, the events of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993, and the repercussions of these seismic attacks. More than 2,900 artifact donors have given to the museum collection and more than 1,970 oral histories have been recorded.  

The In Memoriam exhibition honors the 2,983 victims with biographies and profiles, portraits, spoken remembrances and mementoes contributed by family members.
