To honor the thousands of victims of the tragedy, the 9/11 Tribute Museum in Lower Manhattan opened its doors in 2017.

Currently, the 9/11 Museum is about to permanently close its doors this week.

"

Due to its failure to recover from numerous epidemic setbacks, the famous monument is closing.

"

The 9/11 Museum's founders announced the closure in a statement they released in March.

"

In 2017, the project's funding came from the September 11th Families' Association.

"

As with many other monuments and museums during the pandemic, the association claimed months before that the museum had seen a fall in visitation.

"

The museum wasn't making enough money to keep running because of the low attendance.

"

Sadly, the severity of the pandemic losses has made it impossible to maintain the monument.

"

However, even though the museum will no longer be physically present, the organization plans to maintain the museum online.
