Looking to visit the Flight 93 Memorial?
The Flight 93 Memorial National Park has served as a place of remembrance for the forty passengers that bravely took down the hijacked airplane set on a course for our capital on September 11th, almost 21 years ago. This park developed the landscape surrounding the original crash site into an architectural memorial for visitors to explore and learn about the events of that somber day.
Located in the small, rural town of Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the Flight 93 Memorial began with a quaint display of homage to the passengers presented by the region’s locals. The temporary memorial has now grown into a permanent National Memorial which receives over 400,000 visitors each year. The entrance welcomes you to the site with a newly constructed Tower of Voices, a 93-foot tower with forty wind chimes giving a musical element to begin your visit. The memorial guides you through the path of the aircraft with exhibits spanning from the history of the event to the lives of the passengers. Indoor and outdoor exhibits are available to visitors with the guidance of National Park staff along the way. In addition to the memorial, a plan for the reforestation of 150,000 trees has become an annual volunteer event.
The memorial is open to visitors year-round, typically from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM with no entrance fee required. To plan your visit to this remarkable site of remembrance for the passengers of Flight 93, head to the National Park’s website to begin your trip today.
