The 9/11 Memorial Museum has just announced that they will be reopening to visitors as of Saturday, September 12.
While the 9/11 Memorial reopened in early July, the museum has remained closed for the last six months due to the pandemic. However, with museums now allowed to reopen as early as this month, the 9/11 Memorial Museum has set a date for their reopening. According to their announcement, the museum will reopen on September 12, after an exclusive opening for 9/11 family members on Friday, September 11 (the 19th anniversary of the attacks).
Once open, there will be a 25% capacity limit for visitors, and hours will be slightly different from before. They’ll be open five days of the week, Thursday to Friday from 12pm to 7pm, and Saturday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. They’ll be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. People will be able to visit the museum for free on Mondays after 3:30pm.
Other new guidelines will include:
- Masks and face coverings are required, and social distancing will be enforced.
- Temperature screening for visitors before entry will reinforce our commitment to keeping visitors and staff safe while on site.
- The Museum will be open with a one-way experience to maximize social distancing.
- Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the Museum.
In order to visit, a timed ticket is required so be sure to purchase your in advance. Tickets will be available as of Friday, September 4 at 911memorial.org.
