The 9/11 Memorial will hold a commemoration ceremony on Feb. 26 to honor the 22nd anniversary of the first attack on the World Trade Center, in which six people were killed and more than 1,000 injured.

The ceremony, which will begin at noon after the Port Authority’s observance at St. Peter’s Church, is open to 1993 bombing victims’ family members and will be held by the North Pool near panel N-73, where the names of those killed in the attack are located.

The rest of the memorial plaza will remain open, and members of the public can observe from a distance.

In addition, 1993 bombing survivors are eligible for free admission to the Museum on the anniversary. You can register as a survivor on our 9/11 Memorial Witnesses and Survivors Registry. Please share your story of survival and help build our collection of 1993 related content in the registry.

Once you register, you can reserve your free ticket by calling (212) 266-5211.
