In Memoriam

This display pays tribute to the 2977 persons who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. 

Similar memorials can be found in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon.

In addition, the memorial honors the six people who were killed in the World Trade Center bombing on 26 February 1993.

To highlight the magnitude of the loss, the show includes a floor-to-ceiling display of the 2983 portrait images. 

With people from over 90 nationalities and ages ranging from two and a half to 85, these four walls are unquestionably a true cross-section of humanity.

The gallery’s inner chamber provides a more intimate environment for remembering these people, with personal images and recorded movies left by friends, relatives, and colleagues.

K-9 Courage

This exhibition honors the hundreds of police canine K-9 units that assisted in the 9/11 response activities. 

Following the assaults, K-9 units scoured the debris for survivors and provided comfort to victims’ and responders’ families.

Photographer Charlotte Dumas was determined to learn the exact number of the 9/11 rescue dogs. 

She tracked down 15 of them and traveled the country photographing these unsung warriors.

K-9 Courage was founded over two decades after the 9/11 attacks to give respect to the canine responders.
