NEW YORK – On the foundation of the two towers that fell on September 11, 2001, the 9/11 Memorial Museum will open its doors to the public on May 21.
One of the two main exhibits, the “In Memoriam” exhibit honors those killed on 9/11 and during the bombing of the World Trade Center on Feb. 26, 1993. The historical exhibit tells the story of 9/11 when three attack sites were targeted.
The museum examines what led up to the terror strikes, the aftermath and how the even continues to effect countries around the world. Artifacts, such as twisted steel and a fire truck, remind visitors of the tragedy of terror attacks. The museum also displays photographs, audio, video footage, first-person testimonials and memorabilia.
From May 15 to 20, the museum is open during a tribute-filled dedication period to families of those who lost loved ones in the towers, lower Manhattan residents and others effected by the tragedy.
