Cut in half: The remnant of a firetruck that was damaged in the September 11 attacks is one of the biggest displays at the memorial museum

Wiring: The elevator motor that once shuttled workers up to the highest point of the towers is also one of the more than 10,000 objects on display

Artifacts like the slippers that were on board American Airlines flight 11 that crashed into the North Tower are among the most moving displays in the museum, which opens to the public on May 21

New York as it was: A bicycle stand and the bicycles parked on them were maintained and are on display

Proportions: The 'Last Column', a 58-ton welded piece of plated steel became a memorial during the search and rescue operation and emergency responders posted their own memorials on its sides

Rescue workers: Relatives of the victims and emergency responders will never be charged an entrance fee to the site, which also contains the unidentified remains

Difficult exit: A New York Fire Department ambulance that never made it out of the melee is part of the museum collection

Fire resistant: In addition to the relatives of the fallen, emergency responders are allowed to visit the memorial over the course of the next six days before it is opened to the public

Dealing on a deadline: Firefighters and EMTs were not the only rescue workers who died on that fateful day, as police officers were also among the casualties

Eerily preserved: Dust and ash is shown on the display that made up the front window of Chelsea Jeans, a store that was located on Broadway near Fulton Street at the time of the attack and has since been moved into the museum

Sending out a signal: This 19.8-foot fragment of the once 360-foot transmission that stood atop the tower shows how dramatically everything was broken apart

Charred: Thousands of artifacts, like this payphone, were stored for more than a decade before being moved to the museum

Preview: The exhibit is meant to give a sense of the lead up to the attack and the aftermath as well as a minute-by-minute account of what happened

Iconic images: The clouds of smoke (seen in a photograph at left) and the parallel bars of the building frame (at right) were among the most iconic references to the tragedy

Heartbreaking: The notes left by first responders on the remaining beams are among the most moving

Tributes: Photos and personal stories memorialize the thousands of victims who died in the terrorist attacks

Personal efforts: Quilts (pictured) and other objects made as memorials by New Yorkers are included in the exhibit, which will cost $24 for members of the public to visit

Using every piece: The letters in this Virgil quotation were forged out of steel from the Towers

Revisiting the past: Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani looks over a display during a press previewon Wednesday

Years of work: Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was on hand as the chairman of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum Chairman when the dedication ceremony took place today

Careful construction: The memorial museum is housed near the reflective pools that stand in the place of where the Towers once were

Pricey: The Museum (left) was built and funded entirely separately from the Freedom Tower. The museum and the memorial plaza above it cost a total of $700million to build
