This Saturday, September 11, marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers in New York City and the Pentagon outside Washington, D.C. You may not be able to travel from Missouri to downtown Manhattan or the D.C. metro area, but you can still remember 9/11 and its victims thanks to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
9/11 Memorial and Museum
The 9/11 Memorial and Museum was established to remember the victims of the attacks and help future generations understand their impact and ongoing significance.
The Memorial states:
Honoring those who were killed in the 2001 and 1993 attacks is at the heart of our mission.
