10 Years After Terrorist Attacks, 9/11 Memorial to Open [PHOTOS]
The Sept. 11 Memorial is set to open exactly 10 years and one day after the planes crashed into the World Trade Center. The 9/11 Memorial will open on September 12, after being dedicated during Sunday’s remembrance ceremony in New York City.
The memorial will feature twin reflecting pools and the largest man-made waterfalls in North America. The pools sit in the footprints of where the Twin Towers once stood. The names of every person who died in the 2001 attacks as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993 are inscribed on bronze panels around the pools.
Also located at the site is the 9/11 Museum which will house artifacts, photos, video and audio commemorating the attacks. The museum is set to open in September 2012.
