Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden at 9/11 Museum

Neighborhood: Financial District
Type of Place: Museums


This new exhibition at the 9/11 Memorial Museum explores untold story of the greatest manhunt in U.S. history revealed through declassified artifacts and an immersive digital experience. The exhibition was developed through unprecedented access to key figures involved in the more than 10-year search for bin Laden, including President Barack Obama and members of SEAL Team Six.

Visitors will learn about two networks operating simultaneously: one being intelligence agents, law enforcement and military members working to combat global terrorism and track down bin Laden; the other, the terrorist network, al-Qaeda, working to conceal its leader and spread terror in the West and beyond. Finally, after gathering extensive intelligence and building key relationships over a decade, there’s a break in the pursuit and the story shifts to the decision and consequences of the raid on bin Laden’s compound at Abbottabad, known as Operation Neptune Spear, and the killing of Bin Laden.

The exhibition, which is being told for the first time in its entirety at the 9/11 Memorial Museum, will share insights provided by men and women from the agencies that conducted the hunt, the leadership overseeing the operation, and civilian and military members engaged in the raid, bringing this critical story to our visitors through a powerful and immersive digital experience.
