Give to the Collection

The Museum is actively acquiring materials for its collection such as photographs, videotapes, voice messages, recovered property, clothing and other personal effects, workplace memorabilia, incident-specific documents, and original writings including letters, emails, and diaries that can help illuminate personal experiences during and after September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993.

If you have materials of prospective interest to the Museum, please tell us about them using the form at the bottom of this page.

The Museum also collects photographs, personal mementos, and other memorial materials to commemorate the lives of those who perished on September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. We are actively acquiring materials for our collection to support the presentation of victims in the memorial exhibition, In Memoriam, which provides visitors with the opportunity to learn about the men, women, and children who died.

To learn more about the process of donating artifacts to the collection, please refer to our FAQ page and take a moment to review the Museum’s collections management policy to learn about our collecting scope.
