9/11 MEMORIAL PREVIEW SITE TO OPEN NEAR WORLD TRADE CENTER
Visitors will Have Opportunity to Learn about Memorial and Museum, View Construction Progress, and Share their 9/11 Story with the Museum
On Wednesday, August 26, 2009, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum will open a 9/11 Memorial Preview Site near the World Trade Center. The Preview Site will provide the public with the opportunity to learn about the Memorial and Museum, view the construction progress at the World Trade Center site, and participate in the creation of the Museum by sharing their 9/11 story.
The Preview Site will display models and renderings of the project, illustrating what the World Trade Center site will look like when the rebuilding is complete, along with selected artifacts from the Museumís collection and a historic 9/11 timeline.
Live construction images of the World Trade Center site will also be displayed at the Preview Site, allowing visitors to view current construction and to print images or send them to friends.
Visitors to the Preview Site will have the opportunity to make history by sharing their 9/11 story with Museum. An on-site recording booth will allow the public to contribute to the Museumís planned introductory exhibition that will include a soundscape of people remembering, in multiple languages, where they were on September 11, 2001 and how they learned of the attacks. The Preview Site will help collect these remembrances through 3-minute recorded stories.
Memorial & Museum representatives will be available for interviews at the Preview Site.
