Almost thirteen years after the bombing of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, New York City will be opening a museum dedicated to commemorating the national tragedy.

On March 21, officials announced that the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum will be set to open at the end of May, following a 6-day dedication period for those directly associated with the attacks to visit the museum before it is open to the public.

The museum will feature an “In Memoriam” exhibition listing all 2, 983 people killed in the attacks, while a historical exhibition will educate visitors about the events leading up to the attack.

The museum will be located in the World Trade Center memorial plaza and will be open to the public on May 21, 2014.
