Plans for the National 9/11 Memorial include a museum with artifacts from the original buildings that were destroyed on September 11, 2001. At the entrance, a high glass atrium will display two trident-shaped columns salvaged from the ruins.

Designing a museum of this scope is a long and involved process, and plans are likely to see many transformations. Architect Craig Dykers of Snøhetta will integrate the museum building with the 9/11 Memorial known as Reflecting Absence.
