Included as part of the museum, a gift shop also opened, selling various merchandise connected to the museum as well as the NYPD, FDNY, and other organizations associated with the tragedy. Some people, including family members of the victims, have expressed disappointment over this monetization, so this week on BTR Pulse, Sarah Fraser asks people what they think of the gift shop.
