The 9/11 Memorial & Museum will host commemorative activities in recognition of the 17th anniversary of the end of the historic rescue, recovery and relief efforts at Ground Zero.

On May 30, 2019, we will unveil and formally dedicate the 9/11 Memorial Glade, a new tribute on the 9/11 Memorial plaza that will honor all who are suffering or have died from exposure to hazards and toxins in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks: responders and recovery workers, survivors and community members. The Glade will also recognize the tremendous capacity of the human spirit exemplified during rescue and recovery efforts at all three attack sites, as well as the selflessness and resolve, perseverance and courage of those who came to help and to heal.

We invite you to gather with us near the Glade, in the center of the Memorial plaza, beginning at 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 30. The dedication ceremony will begin promptly at 10:30 a.m. The Glade will open to the public immediately following the dedication ceremony. To help us in our planning efforts, please RSVP to rsvp@911memorial.org with your name and number of guests.

As always, rescue and recovery workers are welcome to visit the Museum during this time with complimentary admission for two guests. If you have not yet joined the Rescue and Recovery Workers Registry, registration is required to reserve your complimentary tickets.
