A Balancing Act: Interpreting Tragedy at the 9/11 Memorial Museum
Rauch, Noah
Journal of Museum Education, v43 n1 p16-21 2018
The 9/11 Memorial Museum's docent program offers visitors artifact-based entry-points into a difficult, emotional history. The program's launch raised a host of questions, many centered on how to balance and convey strongly held, often traumatic, and sometimes conflicting experiences with a newly constructed institutional narrative. This article examines how the museum negotiated specific issues, as well as ongoing questions and challenges. A bibliography is included.
