9/11 Memorial Museum will open to victims' families on anniversary, reopen to public on Sept. 12

NEW YORK — The 9/11 Memorial Museum will open its doors exclusively to victims’ families on Sept. 11, ending a nearly six-month shutdown because of the coronavirus.

The museum will reopen to the public the following day and remain open five days a week while following the city’s COVID-19 guidelines.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced last week that city museums could open later this month since the state’s number of coronavirus cases have remained at an all time low.

Guests coming to see the exhibits will be required to wear masks at all times and the building’s capacity will be reduced to 25% to allow proper spacing of visitors, the museum noted on its website.
