STAGE TUBE: Public Outraged on High Ticket Prices for 9/11 Museum
The 9/11 Memorial Museum will open May 21, 2014. The price for admission is $24, in addition to the pricey souvenirs in the gift shop. The museum also houses around 8,000 unidentified human remains from the 911 attacks. The public is outraged and controversy is ongoing. Check out the video below from ABC News.
A father of a firefighter who died in the attacks, says he won't be visiting the museum. Jim Riches says, "My son's friends are going to have to pay $24 to go down and pay their respects," Riches said. "I think that's a disgrace. It's the only cemetery in the world where you have to pay a fee to get in."
Diane and Kurt Horning who lost their son also had this to say: "I wouldn't expect such an intrusion at Arlington Cemetery or at the Pentagon Memorial or at any cemetery."
