The 9/11 Memorial Museum is in Gastonia for the weekend. An opening ceremony for the museum took place Friday morning. Dozens of first responders from across Gaston County were on-hand for the event.
The museum gives members of the public a chance to learn more about 9/11 and speak to representatives from the New York City Fire Department.
"Its people that come out like Gastonia, and all the sponsors and all the people that come out to see it is what makes this thing what it is today," said Steve Spellman, a representative from the FDNY.
The museum will be open Friday and Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM. It is stationed at the Eastridge Mall in Gastonia.
