9/11 Tribute Museum

Stories of Service and Recovery

New York, NY

The 9/11 Tribute Museum has moved to a new location in order to expand its mission, exhibits and programs. Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership is honored to have been the exhibition and graphic design partners for this new museum which will serve 750,000 to 1 million visitors annually.

 

The expanded 9/11 Tribute Museum includes exhibits depicting the events of 9/11, the response, recovery and rebuilding, global outreach and “Seeds of Service”. Exhibitions offer visitors an in-depth exploration of the personal stories from a range of individuals, learning about their experiences and how they responded to the challenges they faced.

 

The enhanced exhibits share the evolution of counter-terrorism and place additional emphasis on the responses and actions by countless ordinary New Yorkers and people from around the world who chose to help in the aftermath. Partners include City, State, and Federal public safety and counter-terrorism agencies.

 

Through oral history videos, immersive media, environmental graphics, and selected artifacts accompanied by stories, visitors and students will gain a heightened understanding of and appreciation for public service, and a new awareness of our collective responsibility in the aftermath of any disaster. Unified Field, Inc., our media partner in this endeavor, provided the multi-media experiences for the center and Maltbie, Inc. provided fabrication services.  Within the new space, the 9/11 Tribute Museum can continue its mission to support the 9/11 and Lower Manhattan communities, to preserve the history of the attacks and aftermath, and to provide education and resources on the global and continuing impact of 9/11.

“As a New Yorker and an architect, I longed for an opportunity to contribute to the healing in the wake of the tragedy of 9/11.  I am grateful for the chance to lend our skills and passion to such a worthwhile and transformational endeavor. There is no purer or more authentic reflection of the humanity, loss and power of hope than the testimonies of those who experienced first-hand the attacks, the rebuilding and the inspiration to help and heal.”
