A special exhibit marking the 25th anniversary of the 1993 truck bombing of the World Trade Center will open Feb. 1 at the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
The installation in downtown Manhattan is part of a month-long series of commemorative events and will feature artifacts from the attack and subsequent investigation.
A truck bomb exploded below the North Tower on Feb. 26, 1993.
It failed to send the North Tower crashing into the South Tower as terrorists had hoped, but the blast killed six people and injured more than 1,000.
The exhibition — titled "Remembering the 1993 Bombing at the World Trade Center” — tells the story of the bombing plot, its effects on the 16-acre site and the effort to bring the perpetrators to justice, the museum said. The installation will be on view from Feb. 1 to March 5. More information here.
