Dedicated on September 11, 2011, the 9/11 Memorial of Maryland at the Baltimore World Trade Center honors the extraordinary heroism, commitment and sacrifice of Maryland’s 9/11 victims, rescuers, first responders and their families. The Memorial has come to be a place of remembrance as families of victims and the general public observe the annual sundial alignment of the building’s shadow as it passes across the sculpture and etched markings in the marble denoting the timeline of the attacks.

The 9-11 Exhibition including artifacts can be viewed in the Baltimore World Trade Center’s Top of the World Observation Level. Click here for hours.
