We bring you images from the under construction 9/11 MemorialMuseum at the WorldTradeCenter site in New York. The museum is scheduled to be opened to the public in the spring of 2014.

The museum will tell the individual stories of the 2,977 people killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and on Flight 93, as well as the six people who perished in the February 26, 1993 World Trade Center bombing. 

The museum will display artifacts of intimate to monumental scale -- from a wide range of personal items donated by victims’ families in memory of their loved ones to multiple objects salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Center, says Museum Director Alice Greenwald.

The 'Survivor's Stairs' are seen inside the 911 Memorial Museum at the World Trade Center site in New York.

On September 11, 2001, this staircase offered a clear exit from the World Trade Center Plaza to Vesey Street, providing a means of escape for hundreds fleeing from the towers after the attacks and became symbolic of survival and acquired the name 'Survivor's Stairs'.

Construction continues around the last column of steel removed from the World Trade Center site in 2002, inside the 911 Memorial Museum.

The column (seen covered with protective material) is covered with messages and mementos of tribute affixed to its surfaces by recovery workers, first responders and family members of victims and will stand in this area of the Museum next to the 'Slurry Wall' (L) part of the World Trade Center's original foundation built to keep the Hudson River from flooding the site.
