The Memorial and Museum, located at the site of the World Trade Center, is a place of remembrance and reflection that strives to honor the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The museum also pays tribute to rescue workers who risked their own lives to save others, and to survivors of the attacks. The story is told through personal memorabilia, multimedia displays, archives, and narratives.

A number of educational programs are offered at the museum. The programs are designed to help students consider the topics related to the events of 9/11 and are presented to third-through-12th-graders. In programs designed for young children, instructors help students understand the attacks using appropriate images and activities. Older students can participate in programs that study artwork related to the attacks, the design of the World Trade Center, and how the world changed. 

Educators can also participate in programs specifically designed as professional development courses. These workshops address the challenges educators face when teaching difficult content.
