In a few weeks, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum will host commemorative activities in recognition of the 15th anniversary of the end of the historic rescue, recovery, and relief efforts at Ground Zero.

Rescue and recovery worker recognition at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum continues from Tuesday, May 30, through Sunday, June 4. During this time, rescue and recovery workers will receive complimentary admission to the 9/11 Memorial Museum for themselves and two additional guests.

The special programming includes rescue and recovery worker-themed talks in the museum’s auditorium as well as family-friendly activities.

A special ceremony will also take place in Foundation Hall on May 30 to honor rescue and recovery workers and their families. The tribute will include a moment of silence to remember those who have succumbed to 9/11-related illnesses.
