The newly-created memorial will include more than 3500 items connected with the ‘Pulse’ nightclub massacre. The items, that were left in tribute, included stuffed animals, personalised notes and drawings. The curator of the project considers Orlando tragedy to be a historical event.
Michael Perkins, who manages the museum, added that it was still too early to say what they will do with the items, though it was possible it may form part of a planned exhibition on the LGBT community in the city. Mr Perkins also said the museum wanted to preserve the memory of the victims for “generations”.
