9/11 Memorial Museum
Just visited the 9/11 Memorial Museum, which has been opened since May 2014. The tour guide recommended that we start with the 20-minute video, which is why the tickets have the printed showtimes. Then you go downstairs and start with the artistic globe, which was located in a fountain between the twin towers.
The information visualization and timelines were beautiful, yet haunting. As you walk through columns of projections, the audio plays different people's voices. I think each column represented a different time zone.
There is a beautiful installation of paper tiles representing shades of blue the morning of September 11, 2001, surrounding a quote made out of steel from the twin towers, "No day shall erase you from the memory of time" -- Virgil, referenced by The New York Times.
There is an interactive kiosk, where you can write a message, and submit a zip code or country, which places the message and messages in a projection. There were messages in different languages projected on different continents.
There were some timeline information visualizations that were projected on the walls.
This visualization was accompanied by audio:
I have seen this visualization before, but not in the context of the attacks on September 11, 2001 by NASA:
There were great applications of vertical videos, but I was not able to take photos beyond the inner perimeter of the museum. I would recommend a good 4 hours if you are slow to peruse through all artifacts. On Tuesdays, between 5:30pm-8:00pm, the admission is free, but you need to start lining up at 3:00pm-3:30pm.
