National September 11 Memorial Museum

Museum Pavillion NightNew York City, New York, home of some of the best museums in the world, recently opened the National September 11 Memorial Museum, today’s “Museum of the Day”.

Highly criticized for its alleged insensitivity in treating the space as “sacred” because the designers added retail spaces above ashes of the victims of 9/11, this museum deserves our attention today for many reasons.

The National September 11 Memorial Museum serves as the country’s principal institution concerned with exploring the implications of the events of 9/11, documenting the impact of those events and exploring 9/11’s continuing significance.

I look forward to my visit later this month!
