Honor those we lost on 9/11 at the special 15th-anniversary memorial exhibition, United We Stand, United We Signed on view at the National Museum of Funeral History through Saturday, December 31, 2016.
United We Stand, United We Signed features hundreds of memorial books from Dignity Memorial funeral homes across the country that were put out to express condolences following 9/11. The exhibit explores grief and the healing process on a nationwide scale. The memorial books themselves serve as building blocks for a powerful visual within the exhibit.
Also on display are letters of condolences and support to memorialize the men and women who lost their lives tragically. The thoughtful display of a New York Fire Department (NYFD) helmet pays tribute to the many police officers and firefighters who bravely served that day in hopes of saving the lives of thousands. Museum visitors will have an opportunity to share their experiences as they reflect on where they were at the time the twin towers fell.
Entrance into United We Stand, United We Signed exhibit at NMFH is included in the price of general admission to the museum. Receive $1 off general adult admission when visiting before Monday, October 31 by presenting the printable coupon at the bottom of this article.
