Join us this summer for a First Person: Stories of Hope program. Family members, survivors, first responders, journalists, and people involved with rebuilding our city and creating the Memorial will share the remarkable stories of their experiences from April 19, 1995, to the present. Museum visitors can ask questions and learn firsthand how tragedy was transformed into hope. First Person is offered in the Museum on Fridays at 1:30 p.m. from June 4th to August 27th, or for groups by appointment. The program is included free with Museum admission.
