Reasons to Visit

9/11 Tribute Center

The 9/11 Tribute Center provides a variety of options for students to experience 5 galleries exploring the community of the Twin Towers, the events of 9/11, the aftermath, reflect on the loss, and examine how we as a resilient people can grow and help others to recover. Simple and powerful thoughts are expressed in films, stories, images and artifacts. Walking tours are conducted by survivors and rescue/recovery workers.

Ground Zero Museum Workshop

These student educational tours aim to teach the intricate details of what happened on the front lines with FDNY Firefighters after the September 11 attacks. The focus is NOT on the Day of 9/11 itself but the 9-month "Recovery" to locate the missing victims. Learn about the special people that worked at the site, the stories behind the famous images, pick up and hold artifacts that tell a story from Ground Zero.

9/11 Memorial and Museum

The 9/11 Memorial and Museum is the principal institution dedicated to telling the story of 9/11, the people who lost their lives and the psychological scars that remain. Multimedia displays, archives, narratives and artefacts tell intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning, and recovery. Two hour workshops are available based on the themes of memorialization, remembrance and repercussions.

Lower East Side Immigration Experience

Take an in-depth look at the daily lives of New Yorks first immigrants and the grueling conditions and persecution many faced. Examine different immigrant groups’ motivations for coming to New York, and their process of acculturation or integration. Tour stops include: Castle Clinton National Monument, Irish Hunger Memorial, Chinatown and Little Italy

Ellis Island Immigration Museum

Quite literally the gateway for more than 12 million immigrants to the United States as the nation's busiest immigrant inspection station. Now it stands as a museum dedicated to immigration where the Ellis Island Medal of Honor is awarded annually to pay homage to the immigrant experience.

Tenement Museum

The Lower East Side Tenement Museum’s mission is to promote tolerance and historical perspective on the immigrant experience. It presents the lives of those in search of economic opportunity only to find themselves living in one tenement apartment which was home to nearly 7,000 working class immigrants.

Museum of Jewish Heritage

This museum explores Jewish life before, during and after the Nazi genocide. Documentary films, thousands of photos and artifacts, many donated by survivors families form a living memorial to the Holocaust. Special exhibitions tackle historical events or themes, such as “A Town Known as Auschwitz: The Life and Death of a Jewish Community.” The core collection is brought to life with interactive displays, including “Voices of Liberty,” a soundscape of immigrant and refugees reactions to their arrival in the U.S.

The Jewish Museum

The Jewish Museum, housed in the 1908 Warburg Mansion, contains a fascinating collection of more than 28,000 works of art, artifacts and media installations. The two-floor permanent exhibition, “Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey,” examines how Judaism has survived and explores various Jewish identities throughout history.
