    What to Know

    • Forty-nine people were killed and dozens more were injured when a gunman opened fire at the gay nightclub in June 2016.

    A memorial for Florida's Pulse nightclub massacre will have a reflecting pool with rainbow-colored lines radiating from it, and a nearby museum will resemble a three-dimensional spirograph.

    Design concepts for the memorial and museum were announced Wednesday in Orlando.

    Forty-nine people were killed and dozens more were injured when a gunman opened fire at the gay nightclub in June 2016. It was the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history until a gunman opened fire on the Las Vegas Strip in 2017.

    Organizers say the design concepts are only a starting point for discussions on the Pulse memorial and museum and are open to revisions.
