The 9/11 Memorial is opening on September 11, 2011 – the 10th anniversary of the attacks. The 9/11 Memorial Museum is opening a year later on the 11th anniversary. These entities are both the result of robust, and often public, discussions around how the site should be rebuilt. However, despite the public profile of the project, many people are unaware of what is being built and developed. This session walks through the current plans of the Memorial and Museum, offering exclusive looks at their designs, exhibitions, and education offerings.
