Northwest Ohio 9/11 Memorial opens

The Northwest Ohio 9/11 Memorial, sponsored by the 180th Fighter Wing of the Ohio Air National Guard will open to the public on Tuesday, November 13, 2018.

The memorial is designed as a sundial; its outside is numbered like a clock, reflecting the four times planes were crashed by terrorists on September 11, 2001. The memorial contains artifacts from the three sites affected by the terrorist attacks, including steel from the World Trade Center, limestone from the Pentagon, and soil from the field in rural Pennsylvania where Flight 93 went down.

Visiting the memorial is free, but because it is on a military base, visitors must register for tours.

Visitors must obey these regulations.

1. All adults will be required to provide a valid driver’s license or state ID upon arrival. All foreign nationals will be required to provide a valid visa or passport upon arrival. Failure to provide required documentation will result in denied access to the installation.
2. Please plan to arrive a few minutes BEFORE your scheduled tour in order to allow enough time to go through security.
3. Weapons of any kind are prohibited on the installation
4. Illegal drugs of any kind are prohibited on the installation
5. Tours will consist of visiting the memorial only. Guests will NOT have access to tour other installation facilities.
6. Due to Department of Defense security requirements, in accordance with Air Force Manual 31-113, background checks are required PRIOR to your visit to the installation. Once you receive your confirmation email, you will be asked to call our security forces personnel to provide the following information: Driver’s License, State ID, visa or passport number.
