A Look Back at the 2015 Memorial 5K
Thank you to everyone who participated on Sunday, April 26 in our third annual 5K Run/Walk and Family Day event. View a photo gallery of the event here.
At its annual conference in Atlanta this week, the American Alliance of Museums recognized the 9/11 Memorial Museum with its highest award for exhibition achievement. Museum staff accepted the Excellence in Exhibition award, recognizing outstanding achievement in the exhibition format of the Museum’s interstitial spaces.
In addition, from a field of more than 200 applicants, the Museum was awarded five MUSE Awards from the American Alliance of Museums Media and Technology Professional Network. These awards recognize outstanding achievement in the use of digital media to enhance the visitor experience and engage audiences.
The Museum received two silver awards: one in the Applications and APIs category for the Timescape and another in the interactive kiosks category for the signing steel interactive; as well as three honorable mentions for the audio alcoves in the historical exhibition, the Witnessing History audio guide tour and Reflecting on 9/11 and Recording Studio.
The Museum is extremely honored to be recognized by our colleagues for the efforts we expended to craft a meaningful and lasting visitor experience.
