At a time when we are all looking for meaningful ways to connect and educate online, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum is excited to announce the addition of two live virtual field trips for students. Allow your students to experience the power of place and think critically about 9/11 by exploring the 9/11 Memorial & Museum from anywhere in the world.

These age-appropriate tours are led daily by Education Staff via Zoom and are conducive for all learning environments, whether your students are learning in the classroom or remotely.

The Virtual Museum School Tour is a 45-minute live tour for students in grades 6–12. During the program, students explore artifacts and exhibitions inside the Museum to understand what happened on 9/11 and in its aftermath, and to consider the ongoing repercussions of the attacks.

The Virtual Memorial School Tour is a 35-minute live tour for students in grades 3–8. During this tour, students take in panoramic views of the rebuilt World Trade Center to discover the meaning behind the 9/11 Memorial, learn about what happened on 9/11, and consider how people selflessly responded in the aftermath of the attacks.

Visit our virtual field trips page to book your field trip today. This is also where you can find information about pricing, scheduling, and available accommodations.
