One of the most tragic events in the history of the United States now has a museum. The 9/11 Museum will open on May 21, after a preview period of 6 days.
The six-day preview period will be dedicated to 9/11 family members and first responders affected by the tragic attacks which occurred at the World Trade Center in 2001.Throughout the years, work at the Ground Zero continued, as the Twin Towers fell.
Now, a museum is located here to honor all the victims of the September 11 terror attacks. Officials announced on Monday the exact date when the museum will open its gates for visitors. Organizers wanted to offer family members and first responders this period of six days to see the museum thoroughly, before the public.
Everyone who lost someone during the tragedy that occurred in 2001 will be able to visit the museum. Naturally, survivors are included here, but also lower Manhattan residents and business owners. Organizers say that all these individuals will be able to visit the museum for free, although reservations will be required.
“It will be a tremendous privilege to walk the completed 9/11 Memorial Museum for the first time with those who are a part of this defining period of our nation’s history,” a statement of Joe Daniels, the 9/11 Memorial President said, according to the NY Daily News.
“When the museum opens to the public on May 21, millions will come to further understand the experiences, courageous actions, and terrible losses that we saw on 9/11 and in the aftermath. The museum will forever remind us of the capacity we have to come together when the times require,” the same statement added.
There is no doubt in the fact that people from all over the United States, and not only, will come to visit this museum. The much-expected museum will feature exhibitions on the history of the complex, as well as the memorial exhibition. People visiting this place will be able to discover the story of the events that occurred on 9/11.
Organizers say that the 9/11 Museum will be open for visits every day from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visitors will have to pay an admission price to be able to visit the museum.
