    National September 11 Memorial Museum opens

    Posted: Updated: By MYFOX NEW YORK STAFF NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - The steel and glass museum known as the National September 11 Memorial Museum opens to the public in lower Manhattan on Wednesday. It holds heart-wrenching artifacts, including mangled World Trade Center steel and personal mementos from the tragic day.

    Tickets were sold out for the opening with a few remaining for the following day.

    A dedication ceremony was held last week in the cavernous room inside the museum known as Foundation Hall.

    The 9/11 museum houses more than 10,000 artifacts, 23,000 photographs, 1,900 oral histories and 500 hours of film and video. Part of the slurry wall that held back Hudson River water is among the moving artifacts.

    The public symbols of survival and loss include the battered "survivors' staircase" that hundreds used to escape as the skyscrapers burned and crumbled.

    The last column removed from ground zero is covered with missing-person posters and memorial inscriptions by iron workers and rescue personnel.

    The museum also houses controversy. A few 9/11 families are outraged that thousands of sets of human remains will be housed in the same building as the museum. But some people who lost loved ones told Fox 5 the remains belong here.

    Others are upset about by the gift shop on site and the items for sale which range from caps, shirts, coats and other clothing with '9/11' emblazoned across the front. Even dog vests are for sale.

    Museum representatives say the items were chosen carefully and respectfully.

    Admission to the museum is $24 for adults.

    Families of 9/11 victims and 9/11 rescue and recovery workers have free access. The memorial plaza will always remain free, museum officials said.

But now in more and more places you can text to get help. Emergency responders in 16 states are currently using the technology. In New York, you can text 911 in several cities upstate. But not in New York City. As of this month, all four major cellphone companies -- Sprint, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile and ATT -- are able to transmit 911 texts to local governments that want to and are able to receive them.
