9/11 Tribute Museum in New York
The 9/11 Tribute Museum in New York is a museum commemorating victims of the terrorist attacks that took place on the 11th of September 2001. It focuses on the personal stories of the people affected, either directly or indirectly, by the attacks. For example; the victims, their friends and families, first responders and people who lived and/or worked in the area. Don’t confuse this museum with the 9/11 Museum in New York: the official 9/11 Museum.
9/11 Tribute Center
The 9/11 Tribute Museum was previously known as the 9/11 Tribute Center. after relocating In 2017 to a new, larger building, it has become bigger and more professional. It was therefore decided that the name should change to the 9/11 Tribute Museum. The museum was established by the September 11th Families Association: a union consisting of family members of firefighters from the Fire Department of New York, who fell victim to the attacks.
Difference between the 9/11 Tribute Museum and the 9/11 Museum
If you go to New York and want to visit the 9/11 Museum, you may be torn between which of the two to choose. I have seen both and can say that they each offer a different perspective. The biggest difference is that the 9/11 Tribute Museum focuses on the personal stories of the individual victims. Whereas, at the official 9/11 Museum the focus lies on the attacks themselves, with exhibits of artefacts left over from the explosions. In addition, The 9/11 Tribute Museum is a little more personal, so more specifically centred around New York. However, the 9/11 Museum tells a broader story about the happenings on and around the day.
The 9/11 Museum is located next to the 9/11 Memorial: the two square pools where the Twin Towers once stood. The 9/11 Tribute Museum is in the area, but is a little further away from the WTC – terrain. To get to the Tribute Museum from One World Trade Center, walk south along Greenwich Street for around ten minutes.
