Conspiracy theory honored on sacred ground? The Memorial and the Museum are located at the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan.
Museum spokespeople clarify to Newsweek that acquiring Questions doesn’t mean the museum is interested in any questioning of the standard narrative. “This artwork by a witness of the terror attacks in New York City, being accepted in the collection, references a perspective held by some who dispute historical accounts of September 11,” Chief Spokesman Michael Frazier writes in a statement. “While the Museum categorically disagrees with this perspective, does not in any way endorse it, and refutes it through our historical exhibitions, we recognize these baseless views were taken by some after 9/11 and see the artwork only as an artifact of that movement.”
“We do have other Truther material,” adds Anthony Guido, director of communications.

The 9/11 Museum has attracted 1.8 million visitors since it opened last May. Freda’s work joins a collection of more than 23,000 images and 10,300 artifacts, which include beams from the Twin Towers, emergency vehicles and personal objects that belonged to victims. The museum says it has no plans to display Freda’s work.
“You can’t have a 9/11 museum without the 9/11 Truth movement being represented in some way,” Freda says, though he concedes, “I’m still not sure what their motivations are for having this piece in there.”
