The National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York City will open to the public for the first time next week.

It will serve as the nation’s principal institution to honor and commemorate those who lost their lives on that day  in 2001.

The museum recognizes the sacrifices of some 3,000 victims and the families of these who were attacked at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in a field near Shanksville, Pensylvania. The museum also recognizes those who risked their lives to save others, the efforts to comfort and console those who perished on that day and the thousands who survived to help others through the difficult aftermath of those horrific attacks on 911.

President Obama dedicated the museum, offering a stirring tribute honoring the heroes of that day and memorializing those who perished. He called on Americans to never allow terrorism to shatter the resolve of the nation.“No act of terror can match the strength or the character of our country,” Mr. Obama said. “Like the great wall and bedrock that embrace us today, nothing can ever break us. Nothing can change who we are as Americans.”
