The 9/11 Memorial & Museum will host a commemorative ceremony and a virtual tour on Friday to honor the six people killed in the first attack at the World Trade Center on February 26, 1993.

The ceremony, held on the 28th anniversary of the attack and in conjunction with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, will begin at 12:15 p.m. at the northwest corner of the North Pool, in the vicinity of panel N-73. We will observe a moment of silence at 12:18 p.m., marking the time when the attack occurred.

The commemoration will include a moment of silence and the reading of the names of John DiGiovanni, Robert Kirkpatrick, Stephen Knapp, William Macko, Wilfredo Mercado, and Monica Rodriguez Smith as flowers are placed near where their names are inscribed on the bronze parapet of the North Pool.

At 2 p.m. on Friday, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum will host a free virtual tour through the Museum’s key spaces as we remember the first attack at the World Trade Center and commemorate the lives of the victims. This 60-minute program provides a deeper understanding of 9/11 and the 1993 bombing, the lead-up to the attacks, and their continuing global significance. 

The tour is live, interactive, and led by Museum staff through Zoom. Please RSVP to reserve your spot on the virtual tour. Space is limited and reservations are required.
