Interactive Highlights Museum Accomplishments Since Opening
A newly launched interactive graphic available on the 9/11 Memorial’s website explores the institution’s accomplishments since its May 2014 opening.
The 9/11 Memorial Museum is holding special talks every Tuesday and Thursday this month that will focus on the 1993 World Trade Center bombing to honor its anniversary on Feb. 26.
These programs, part of “The Stories They Tell” series, will take place at noon in the auditorium and are free for museum visitors.
Each Tuesday, Director of Research Liz Mazucci will give a presentation titled “The Terrorist’s Laptop.” The talk will explore the connection between the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 9/11 attacks by looking at the laptop computer belonging to Ramzi Yousef, who was convicted in the 1993 bombing. The artifact is now in the museum’s Historical Exhibition.
On Thursdays, museum staff will examine the 1993 bombing in general, in a talk titled “The First Attack,” drawing upon artifacts and eyewitness accounts from the museum’s collection.
You can read more about the 1993 bombing on our website. Information on other special programs honoring the 1993 bombing anniversary will be posted as it becomes available.
