The 9/11 Tribute Museum moved to a new location in order to expand its mission, exhibits and programs. SKOLNICK Architecture + Design Partnership was honored to be the Exhibition and Graphic Design partner for the Museum where it will serve almost 1 million visitors annually.
The 9/11 Tribute Museum’s belief is that through an understanding of the horrific events on that day, visitors can learn the importance of service and contribution to their communities. The exhibits include an overview of the events of 9/11, the response, recovery and rebuilding, global outreach and “Seeds of Service” – an interactive and engaging experience that inspires visitor to make a commitment to volunteer and perform acts of charitable service.
Through oral history videos, immersive media, environmental graphics, and key artifacts accompanied by stories, visitors and students gain a heightened understanding of and appreciation for public service and a new awareness of our collective responsibility in the aftermath of any disaster. Within the new space, the 9/11 Tribute Museum will 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 this event.
