9/11 Memorial Museum Centerpiece: Help contribute to Memorial Exhibition

The 9/11 Memorial Museum's Memorial Exhibition will commemorate the lives of the people killed on September 11, 2001, and February 26, 1993, allowing visitors to know more about the women, men and children, who perished in those attacks. Plans for the museum allows visitors to enter the exhibition along a corridor in which portrait photographs of the nearly 3,000 victims form a "Wall of Faces" that is intended to try and communicate the scale of human loss.

As part of the exhibition, interactive tables are planned that will allow visitors to discover more information about each person, including additional photographs, remembrances by family and friends and artifacts. An adjoining space will present profiles of individual victims in a dignified sequence through photographs, biographical information, and audio recordings. Every victim's name will be read aloud within the memorial exhibition. These spoken names will be professionally recorded by a group of volunteer family members. If you are interested in contributing your time and voice to this group, please contact us.

The memorial exhibition relies on materials contributed by you. Learn more here.
