9/11 Memorial Museum To Open In May
Two years ago, my wife and I visied the 9/11 Memorial in New York City, which was a very moving experience. At that time, the new 1 World Trade Center building and memorial museum were still under construction. Now, it’s been announced that the museum will finally open to public in May. Here are the details.
According to an article written by Karen Matthews on aol.com:
“A long-awaited museum dedicated to the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks will open to the public at the World Trade Center site on May 21, officials announced Monday.
The opening will follow a May 15 ceremony and a six-day dedication period during which the museum will be open around the clock for 9/11 family members, rescue and recovery workers and others directly affected by the 2001 attacks, said Joe Daniels, president of the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
The museum includes two core exhibitions at the foundation of the trade center complex.
The museum’s regular hours will be 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
Planners had originally hoped that the museum could open in 2011, on the 10th anniversary of the attacks. Construction delays were made worse by flooding caused by Superstorm Sandy and by a funding dispute with the site’s owner, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, stopping all work for nearly a year.”
