From Jul 09, 2011 to Jul 15, 2011 (included)
|The National September 11 Memorial will be dedicated on September 11, 2011 for the 10th anniversary commemoration ceremony, hosted by the City of New York and open to all family members of the victims of the 9/11 and February 26, 1993 attacks.
This page includes information about how victims’ family members may reserve timed passes for the days following the 9/11/11 dedication.
After the 10th anniversary, rebuilding of the entire 16-acre World Trade Center site will continue over the next few years, and during that time, there is a need to manage capacity on the Memorial. On and after September 12, 2011, advance visitor pass reservations are required for all visitors.
Throughout and beyond this period of interim operations during which reservations are required, our priority is to accommodate family members of the victims of the September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 attacks. We have taken special measures to facilitate family visitation after the 10th anniversary.
Below is more information for how you can plan your visit. Again, these measures are for 9/11 family member visits on and after September 12, 2011.
Reservations by phone
9/11 family members can reserve visitor passes for 9/12 and beyond by calling this dedicated phone line from 9am – 7pm daily. 9/11 family members’ reservations made through this phone line will always be secured from a permanent allocation of passes set aside for families. Staff at this number will also provide assistance in planning a visit.
Reservations online (beginning July 11, 2011)
9/11 family members can also reserve visitor passes through our general online reservation system, which will be available to the general public beginning July 11, 2011.
9/11 Family Member Reception (opens September 12, 2011)
There will be a separate reception area/entry point for 9/11 family members, which will be located at 90 West St., adjacent to the Memorial. To ensure safety and security at the Memorial, all visitors must be screened; the family member reception will have a private security screening area.
