WORLD TRADE CENTER 9.11 EXHIBIT
We’re proud to partner with Honor365 and STRIVE to host the 9.11 exhibition, 20 Years: Remembering the One. Remembering Them All., honoring the fallen, first responders and heroes of that tragic day.
The exhibit features a replica model of the World Trade Center Plaza created by Daan Van Der Steijn from The Netherlands. He recounts the endless sacrifices made on that day, particularly by the first responders.
Join us as we celebrate Independence Day and highlight reflections on duty, service and freedom. Check back for reflections on July 5 from a Medal of Honor recipient, Friday Fun Days, Depicting The Invisible Beyond the Exhibit event and more exciting experiences.
DEPICTING THE INVISIBLE
Artist Susan J. Barron's deeply personal and hauntingly beautiful portraits of Veterans coping with PTSD was inspired after hearing 22 Veterans commit suicide daily in our country. Her series of large-scale, mixed media works on canvas and an award-winning documentary film short illustrate the Veterans' stories in their own words. Depicting The Invisible is presented by CAS with support from the Greater Columbus Arts Council and the Ohio Arts Council.

Health & Safety Guidelines
To ensure you and your loved ones a safe and enjoyable visit, we have established and continue to follow local, state and national CDC guidelines for face coverings and social distancing.
The National Veterans Memorial and Museum was created for a unique and specific purpose: to preserve, share and celebrate the personal experiences of our nation’s Veterans. Past and present. From all branches of service. And from all eras of conflict and peacetime service.
Their stories shaped a nation. Our freedom is their legacy. Share in the celebration, and be inspired by the courage of those who served.
We are more than a museum. We are the New Home of the Brave.
