Offering a behind-the-scenes look into the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, ambassadors examine artifacts from the Museum and explore ongoing themes and issues raised by 9/11. With this foundation, ambassadors craft artifact talks and learn how to present them effectively to a variety of audiences.

The Ambassador Program will resume in 2021. Please check back in the fall for updates or email ambassadors@911memorial.org.
