Ground Zero Museum in New York
The Ground Zero Museum is dedicated to the memories of the devastating attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City on 9/11.
Originally this place was a firehouse built in 1904 but now this museum displays the complete picture of what happened on that fateful day.
There is a free walking tour through 5 shows which depict the loss suffered by the victims, the survival of some and heroism shown by others.
This is a temporary centre. A permanent one is being constructed and will include a permanent museum as well as a memorial.
The aim of the Ground Zero museum is to raise awareness among people to the heroic acts of the Ground Zero recovery workers, educate students about the ill effects of terrorism, to honour the lives of the people who lost their lives on September 11 and to raise funds for treating the sick and disabled Ground Zero workers.
