Tribute WTC Visitor Center connects visitors who want to understand and appreciate the historic events of September 11th with those who experienced them. Through walking tours, exhibits and programs, the Tribute WTC Visitor Center offers "person to person history."

Five galleries reveal personal stories and authentic 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 are captured on visitor response cards comprise Voices of Promise, creating an international dialogue about turning grief into hope and renewal.


Lectures and programs may be scheduled for school groups. Group reservations recommended for 10 or more visitors. Programming available online and at the center.
