Public programs at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum this fall will feature the talent behind the Broadway musical “Come From Away,” the former director of the National Security Agency and a Washington Post correspondent who will share her experience of interviewing notorious jihadists. 

The public program series is designed to deepen audiences understanding of 9/11’s continuing impact in America and around the world through film screenings, moderated conversations and performances.

The season begins on Sept. 18 with an event showcasing the award-winning musical “Come From Away” that features special guests who were instrumental in bringing this moving story of human kindness to the Broadway stage. It tells the story about thousands of airline passengers who were diverted to the small town of Gander following the 2001 terror strikes. 

Programs are free to the public, but registration is required. Learn more and register here.

The 2017–18 public program season at the 9/11 Memorial Museum has been made possible in part by the David Berg Foundation.
