Organizers of the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York have begun charging visitors a $2 reservation fee to obtain admission passes. Visitors were previously allowed to reserve a pass for free.
The official website for the memorial states that reservations made online or by phone carry a $2 nonrefundable service fee per pass. But passes for same-day visits obtained in person at 20 Vesey Street in New York are free.
The organization also states that 9/11 family members are exempt from the $2 fee.
