Salute to Service

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum will pay tribute to our country’s veterans during Salute to Service, a special tribute honoring our country’s veterans and the families and communities that support them.

From Friday, November 8, to Thursday, November 14, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum will host a series of events and special programs for veterans and their families, as well as the visiting public. 

Throughout our tribute, veterans will receive free Museum admission. Veterans will also receive half-price Museum tickets for two family members during the tribute. When reserving tickets, veterans will need to provide their name, email, military branch, and years of service. Reserve your tickets here.

On November 11, Veterans Day, the Museum will open at 8 a.m. to accommodate the veteran and military community participating in the Veterans Day Parade.

The 9/11 Memorial Museum will also host previews of a new special exhibition, Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden, for active members of the U.S. military and veterans on Monday, November 11, and Thursday, November 14, 2019.
