Description

Five galleries reveal personal stories and experiences of members of the World Trade Center community who recount the events of February 26, 1993 (when a truck bomb exploded in the WTC parking garage) and September 11, 2001, when two hijacked planes were flown into the two towers.

In the gallery World Trade Center: Community Remembered, shared memories and personal photos surround a scale model of the twin towers. Passage through Time: September 11th is an interactive timeline that shares personal experiences of the tragic events through audio recordings, recovered artifacts and a gray cloud of "missing posters." Aftermath: Rescue and Recovery uses images, artifacts and film to portray the recovery work in the days and months after September 11. Tribute is a collage of photographs and symbolic objects that pay tribute to the victims. Inspirational experiences captured on visitor response cards comprise Voices of Promise, creating an international dialogue about turning grief into hope and renewal.
