The 9/11 Memorial Museum is waiving its controversial $24 admission fee on opening day.

The New York Post reported Wednesday that media giant Condé Nast, which is moving to the World Trade Center site, has made a donation that will enable visitors to see the much-anticipated exhibits for free when the museum opens May 21.

“This is a terrific contribution from a partner. I sincerely believe others will be inspired by Condé Nast’s generosity in supporting the 9/11 Memorial Museum in this special way,” 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels told the Post.

“Helping the public visit this historic museum is a direct way to uphold our collective obligation to never forget,” he said.

Conde Nast will become the corporate anchor at 1 World Trade Center, overlooking the entire 16-acre site as well as the Memorial and Museum, the Post noted.

“It is a source of great pride for Condé Nast to contribute to the momentous opening of the 9/11 Memorial Museum and the revitalization of lower Manhattan,” Charles H. Townsend, the company’s CEO, told the newspaper.

Though visits will be free opening day, reservations are still required.

The haunting collection includes physical remains of unidentified victims of the 2001 terror attacks. They'll be stored behind a wall in an area off-limits to the public.

The museum will exhibit hundreds of artifacts from the horrific attacks — from a burned FDNY ambulance to the watch worn by Flight 93 hero Todd “Let’s Roll” Beamer with the date still at “11.”
