In 2013, the 9/11 Memorial welcomed more than 5.3 million visitors from across the world.

Great strides were made in 2013 toward the completion of the 9/11 Memorial Museum. The 9/11 Memorial Membership program was launched, offering the opportunity to be among the first to see the Museum when it opens in spring 2014.

The first 9/11 Memorial 5K and Family Day was held in 2013, which raised nearly $2.2 million in support. Registration also opened in 2013 for next year’s 9/11 Memorial 5K and Family Day.

As the year comes to an end, take a look back at some more of the Memorial’s top moments. Follow @Sept11Memorial on Twitter and #Our2013Moments for highlights from 2013.
