School Visits

The Museum offers a diverse set of inquiry-based programs designed to challenge students to think critically about a wide range of topics related to 9/11. All programs align with the Common Core Standards, require one chaperone per 10 students, and are presented in English. Visit our Plan Your School Visit page for tips on how to prepare for a school program, including FAQs and lesson plans.

Thanks to generous support from the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, student workshops and tours for New York City schools are free of charge for the 2018–2019 school year. Limited funding is also available for schools in New York State, New Jersey and Connecticut on a first-come, first-served basis. More information can be found here.

Reservations for student programs from Jan. 14, 2019, to Jun. 14, 2019, are now available using our online education booking portal. This new portal allows registered users to view available dates and times and select programs. Educators and administrators working with grades 3 through 12 can request an account to begin booking visits for spring 2019. For all other requests, contact Group Sales.
