Next year, the 9/11 Memorial Museum will open with its first exhibit: an audio collage meant to capture how different people remember the event. When visitors walk in, they’ll hear recordings of people from around the world recounting where they were and what they felt seeing the attack.

The Wall Street Journal reports that these memories will be spoken in different languages and fragments of their speech will be shown on screens around the hall, their words forming maps. The exhibit has been created by New York design firm Local Projects, which has also developed audiovisual displays exploring the experiences of the people inside the towers when the planes struck, first responders and recovery workers.

One presentation will play the voices of the people inside as they describe the events and their attempts to escape. It includes recordings of 911 calls and voicemail recordings left for friends and family, used with their permission.
