HONG KONG -- A museum commemorating the victims of China's 1989 crackdown on student protesters in Tiananmen Square is set to open its doors in New York on Friday, ahead of the 34th anniversary.

The campaign to build the June 4th Memorial Museum started in January last year, following the closure of a similar permanent exhibition in Hong Kong under the sweeping national security law imposed in June 2020.
