With just over a decade since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the 9/11 Memorial Museum will finally be open to the public on May 21, 2014 at the very spot that the World Trade Center once stood.

The museum will include photos, videos, audio, and more than 10, 000 artifacts collected from the day of the terrorist attacks, including a charred ambulance and fire truck. Even more special is that the museum allows the 2,983 people who died in the attacks to come alive again for the visitors with pictures, biographies, and even oral histories by their family members. The museum also examines the time leading up to the attacks and the impact they have had on society even still today.

Tickets are available at 911memorial.org with hours 9-5 daily. The museum is free for everyone on Tuesdays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and at all times to 9/11 family members and rescue workers.
