The 9 11 memorial and museum is an important part of the history of our country.
It serves as a reminder to never forget what happened, and also helps us remember those who lost their lives on that fateful day.
The museum was opened to the public on May 21, 2014.
There are four exhibition halls containing original artifacts and live presentations of events from that day by those who lived them.
Visitors can touch a piece of steel taken from one of the towers, see what it is like in an eerily empty subway station
(complete with old graffiti).
Feel wind blowing through the tower’s broken windows.
Walk down streets littered with rubble and debris, hear horrifying cell phone calls made during the attack or listen to family members recite their final goodbyes over crackling fire department radios.
The memorial includes two pools set within footprints where once stood WTC Towers One & Two the site now commemorates all who were killed as well.
