The 9/11 Memorial and Museum is about to open to the public.

Some people are surprised to learn there is a gift shop selling memorabilia.

Some critics believe it is inappropriate to make money from the 9/11 tragedy.

According to WPIX in New York, proceeds from the items sold at the museum will help to keep it running. It has not received federal, state or city funds yet.

Admission to the museum is $24 per person.

Products include a “Darkness Hoodie” with the shapes of the Twin Towers on the front and jewelry modeled after the “Survivor Tree.” Other items include NYPD and FDNY hats and t-shirts.
