The interim memorial at Pulse is now open to the public. Owner Barbara Poma says a permanent museum will follow after planning wraps up at the end of the year.

“It’s overwhelming, I think I need to get past this and then take a deep breath. I need to get ready for June 12 which is remembrance week. They’re still hard at work getting ready for the next phase of this building.”

Visitors to the memorial can interact with a photo wall made up of hundreds of pictures and write a message of remembrance on the living memorial under the Pulse nightclub sign.
