During the dedication period, the museum at the World Trade Center site will be open around the clock for 9/11 family members and rescue and recovery workers.

The museum's regular hours will be 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Admission will be $24 but waived on Tuesday nights.

Relatives of 9/11 victims, rescuers and children 6 and younger will be admitted for free.

Planners had originally hoped the museum could open on the 10th anniversary of the attacks, but construction issues, funding disputes and Superstorm Sandy flooding contributed to the delay.
