Greenburgh Library cardholders ages 18 and older can now access the 9/11 Memorial & Museum through our museum pass program. This tribute honors the 2,977 victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks, the six victims of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and all the rescue and recovery workers, survivors, and the lower Manhattan community affected by the aftermath.

Located on half of the former World Trade Center site, the Memorial features Tribute in Light, a commemorative public art installation that honors those killed and celebrates the unbreakable spirit of New York; Memorial Glade, a dedicated space honoring the ongoing sacrifice of rescue, recovery, and relief workers, and the survivors/members of the broader lower Manhattan community who are sick or have died from exposure to toxins at the World Trade Center site in the aftermath of 9/11; The Survivor Tree, a Callery pear tree that endured the 2001 terror attacks; and twin reflecting pools with the largest man-made waterfalls in North America and the names of the victims inscribed on bronze parapets around the pools. The Museum offers an audio guide app with a 40-minute tour covering the events of 9/11, the victims, and the Memorial’s design.

Each pass reservation admits two adults and two children (under 18 years old) and is reserved for FOUR (4) days, including the day of pick-up and return. You can reserve your museum pass on our website or contact the library directly. We hope this opportunity provides a meaningful experience for all our patrons.
