September 11: Bearing Witness to History - National Museum of American History

The immediate collecting priorities focused on the attacks, the response and rescue efforts, and the commemoration that followed. The collection we present on this site represents a work in progress. It embodies the best efforts of staff across the Museum to document and preserve a wide range of stories about September 11. Each object, as material evidence of the attacks and their immediate aftermath, is a piece of a large and complex story. WGBH American Experience . Nixon. The History Place.
