Outraged Survivors Say 9/11 Museum Is More a Tourist Attraction Than a Memorial
When 9/11 responder John Feal visited the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York City last week ahead of its public opening, which is this Wednesday, he never expected to see a gift shop packed with overpriced items such as stuffed animals, jewelry, and $95 silk scarves.
“The gift shop was uncalled for. I walked up to it and thought, ‘You have to be kidding me,’ ” he said. “Those who lost loved ones and were there don’t need a key chain.”
