Inauguration of the 9/11 Museum in New York – rts.ch

Built in the foundations of the World Trade Center towers, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum was inaugurated Thursday in New York in the presence of President Barack Obama.

The 9/11 Museum opened Thursday in New York after three years of delay. The building, built in memory of the terrorist attacks that struck the city in 2001, is located at the base of the World Trade Center towers.

President Barack Obama hailed a “sacred place of healing and hope”. “Nothing can break us Americans,” he added, paying homage to the “true spirit of 9/11:“ love, compassion and sacrifice ”.

Travel 20 meters underground

The geometric building is the tip of the iceberg. Visitors gradually dive into the bowels of ancient towers, 20 meters below the surface.

The “In memoriam” exhibition pays tribute to the victims. Another, “Historica”, tells the story of the day of September 11, with numerous photos, excerpts from television news and newspaper headlines.

The National September 11 Memorial & Museum will be open to the public on May 21.
