PELHAM, N.Y. New York State Assemblywoman Amy Paulin and other members of the New York State Assembly toured the construction site of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
The museum is set to open on Sept. 12, according to Kevin Haran, media director for Paulin's office. A ceremony will be held at the site on Sept. 11 for the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
The construction of the memorial took place on the former site of the South Tower, the first building to fall on Sept. 11. A memorial with reflecting pools with the victims' names inscribed on the edges will also occupy the former site of the North Tower.
Paulin visited the Survivor Tree, which officials took from the wreckage of the World Trade Center. Experts rejuvenated the tree and replanted it at the memorial site.
Will you visit the museum once it is finished? Comment below, on Facebook or Twitter.
