We Were There

The 9/11 Tribute Museum, an official partner of the 9/11 Memorial Museum, presents "We Were There," a weekly public program featuring two 9/11 Tribute Museum volunteer guides sharing their compelling and poignant personal stories in the Memorial Museum auditorium.

You will hear stories from 9/11 family members, survivors, rescue and recovery workers and local residents. A 9/11 Tribute Museum moderator sets the historic context for each of the stories and connects them to artifacts and issues that the visitors may experience in the Memorial Museum, transforming history from something abstract and distant to something that is close to each listener's experience.

The program closes with an opportunity for the audience to discuss and reflect on the stories.

Visitors must have admission tickets to the 9/11 Memorial Museum and line up at 3:45 p.m. outside the auditorium to attend this collaborative weekly program.
