  1. 9/11 Museum Opens to the Public

    The National September 11 Memorial Museum will open its doors to the general public on Wednesday. The project’s development has embodied the challenges of creating a memorial that honestly communicates the horror of the event without reawakening the trauma. The curators also had to grapple with the ongoing repercussions of the attacks and the variety of opinions on how it should be commemorated. Ultimately, they have relied heavily on artifacts and individual testimony, allowing witnesses to communicate directly rather than imposing a single interpretation of the country’s “collective agony.”
