Fashion’s Night Out
For one night only!

9/11 Memorial Preview Site
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum remains under construction, but its preview site, opened last year, has already hosted 1 million visitors. You can go to the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site to learn about the memorial’s progress and contribute to its archive by sharing your own experience of September 11. The personal stories shared by visitors will become part of the museum’s permanent collection. The preview site is open daily and entrance is free, but on September 10 and 11, access is limited to the families of 9/11 victims.
