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 remainder of the 2017–2018 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 fall 2017 student programs are now available and can be made using the school booking request form.
