9/11 Memorial & Museum- National Aviation Week
On the morning of September 11, 2001, flight crew members aboard Flights 11, 175, 77 and 93 went above and beyond their official duties and responded in selfless and courageous ways during one of the most trying times in American History. The bravery shown by these Pilots and Flight Attendants remains an important part of the story told at the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
Coinciding with National Aviation Week, the 9/11 Memorial Museum invites active and retired flight crewmembers and their guests to visit the Museum for free during regular operating hours from August 16th-22nd. Additionally, if you are interested in placing flowers or a wreath by the names of the fallen passengers and flight crew members, you are more than welcomed to do so.
You may reserve your ticket for the Museum using the link here.
On the day of your visit, you may pick up your ticket at the box office and will be asked to show your flight crew credentials to receive your free tickets.
As in years past, the Museum will write up a blog post highlighting National Aviation Week to honor the commitment made by flight crew members every day to keep us safe. If you are able to place flowers, please email the 9/11 Memorial Museum, as they would like to feature your tribute in that upcoming blog.
The Memorial is open daily from 10 am-5 pm, and the Museum is open Thursday-Monday from 10 am-5 pm. The last entry to the Museum is at 3:30 pm. Please contact Chris Mendoza at [email protected] to arrange your tribute or for more information.
