The event which is listed on this page is not open to the general public. We’ve listed this merely for informational purposes.
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum commemoration ceremony will take place on the 9/11 Memorial plaza at the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan.
The commemoration is for family members of victims of the 2001 and 1993 attacks, and they have been invited to participate in this year’s reading of the names. The 9/11 Memorial Museum will be open solely for family members, beginning at 7 a.m. The ceremony will pause at six moments – acknowledging when each of the World Trade Center towers was struck and fell as well as the times corresponding to the attack on the Pentagon and the crash of Flight 93. The first moment of silence will be at 8:46 a.m., and houses of worship have been asked to toll their bells at that time. The ceremony will conclude at about 1:00 p.m. (This is subject to change.)
