Incorporating the death of Osama Bin Laden into the 9/11 Museum

Alice Greenwald, director of the museum

NBC reports that the 9/11 Museum and Memorial is working to incorporate Osama Bin Laden’s death into the narrative of their exhibition.

“Everything we do is looked at through the lens of being at a memorial site,” said Greenwald. “We include the story of the perpetrators not to elevate them, not for this to be the museum that profiles Osama bin Laden.”

“They are in the story, in the role they assumed, which was murderers,” Greenwald added.

The new bin Laden chapter will not mark the end of the historical exhibition. The museum says it will be able to add new exhibits for any future 9/11-related events.
