NEW YORK (AP) — Far below the earth where the twin towers once stood, a cavernous museum on hallowed ground is finally nearing completion.
Powerful artifacts of death and destruction have assumed their final resting places inside the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
The museum is a vast space that travels down to the bedrock upon which the towers were built.
Already on display are several pieces of mangled steel and metal recovered from the World Trade Center towers. Each one tells a different story of the terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.
A battered staircase that leads to the bottom of the museum provided an escape route for hundreds of people who fled from the towers on Sept. 11, 2001.
The museum is expected to open next spring.
