Public Programs

As part of our mission to explore the global impact of 9/11 and its continuing significance, the 9/11 Memorial Museum regularly hosts public programs that cover a wide array of contemporary topics. These programs invite experts from diverse backgrounds to offer insights and discuss their work on themes relating to national security, foreign policy, public safety and journalism, as well as culture, literature and the arts.

Our 2016-2017 programming season has concluded. Recordings of past programs are available at New programs will be announced later this summer.
