Students look at artifacts in the 9/11 Tribute Center galleries

Current events or history? Our young people are deeply curious and want to understand what happened.

Every year, more than 20,000 students visit the 9/11 Tribute Center and leave inspired. We openly discuss the tragic events. We discuss recovery, resilience and the strength of our humanity when we help each other.

The 9/11 Tribute Center provides a variety of options for students from grades 5 to 12. You can schedule a visit for your class at the 9/11 Tribute Center, or an audio tour on the 9/11 Memorial, or a Long-Distance Learning (Skype) program so that we can bring our guides to your classroom.
