twin-towers-at-the-9-11-museumThe 9/11 Museum is preparing to receive the remains of unidentified victims of the attack on the World Trade Center, according to a published report.

The Medical Examiner’s office is finalizing plans to transfer the remains, the New York Post reported.

“We’re getting ready,” said city Medical Examiner’s Office spokeswoman Julie Bolcer. “We’re planning the move.”

Current plans call for the remains to be stored behind a wall engraved with a quote from Virgil: “No day shall erase you from the memory of time,” the Post reported.

Also located behind the wall will be a visiting room and a Medical Examiner’s office which will continue to work to identify remains.

“The repository and work space will occupy approximately 2,500 square feet of space, and have been designed by the OCME to provide the highest levels of care and safest environment for the remains,” the Medical Examiner’s office said.

The museum plans to charge $24 for admission.
