-- the rise of freedom now our continuing look at the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site here in New York.
And the 9/11 memorial is set to open on the ten year remembrance of that tragedy.
Allowing the public to return to the site for the first time since the attacks.
But beneath that memorial crews are still hard at work building the 9/11 museum it scheduled to open a year from September.
And as the place begins to take shape the folks at the museum gave our journalists and early preview.
It's the first time -- allowed a national television -- to -- that museum.
The way the public will.
Everything everything everything from building that how it.
And this museum this experience is actually a museum fit within an artifact.
The 9/11 museum director Alice Greenwald took our cameras into that artifact through pavilion between the footprints of the towers.
Passed a pair of steel -- it's.
A -- she says of endurance.
We start our exhibition experience along here along -- walkway -- the construction ramp that crews used to recover.
The first thing you begin to understand.
As you walked down the ramp.
Is that you're not in a conventional media.
You are surrounded by the foundational elements of a construction site.
Including the slurry wall which holds back the Hudson River.
And the final column of the structural steel that crews removed from ground zero the challenges of this museum -- enormous it's not like.
A beautiful big brown with white walls that you can hang paintings and we have.
A story to tell -- extraordinary artifacts artifacts like the survivors staircase.
The only route of escape for hundreds who made -- out that day.
Visitors pass it on their way to the memorial exhibition in this quarter you can imagine on the wall surrounding us what you -- see when museum opens.
Is the portraits of nearly 3000 people.
In alphabetical order with their names attached to the portrait floor to ceiling.
Overwhelming all around nearby the name's Susan.
And he was the greatest father he was very very involved with the -- of every single victim.
With the underlying message that he could've happened to anyone.
When you see yourself.
In other people you recognize number one this is not someone else's loss.
It's our loss collectively.
And number two an act of terrorism anywhere -- an assault on every one.
And that's the fundamental message of this music.
Was down there just a couple of days ago and what -- site and what you saw there only scratches the surface but what the museum will include.
You can find much more from that -- plus commentary from the folks in charge of planning the museum as a web extra.

And we'll have another story on the rise of freedom.
The news breaking this hour.
