The National 9/11 Memorial and Museum opened last week to survivors, first responders, and relatives of victims. While the memorial and museum were well received, some were not too crazy about the 9/11 gift shop!

 

 

Mugs, mousepads, and key chains.are all for sale.  Visitors can  even buy a “Darkness Hoodie” printed with an image of the Twin Towers for $39, “Survivor Tree” earrings for $64, or silk scarves printed with 1986 photos of Manhattan for $95! Diane Horning, whose 26-year-old son was killed in the terrorist attack said, “To me, it’s the crassest, most insensitive thing to have a commercial enterprise at the place where my son died.” She slammed the gift shop as “a money-making venture to support inflated salaries.” (Yahoo)

 

Other visitors, however, say they understand the museum’s need to raise funds.  What do you think?
