The 9/11 Museum yanked a USA-shaped cheese platter -- which reminds snackers where planes struck nearly 13 years ago — from shelves of its tact-challenged gift store.

The National September 11 Memorial Museum’s gift shop has heavily criticized since The Post, earlier this month, highlighted offensive items being sold at the solemn locale.

The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday night that the museum ditched a cheese platter, in the shape of America’s 48 contiguous states, with heart symbols at spots where three hijacked planes crashed on Sept. 11, 2001.

Memorial CEO Joe Daniels said all future items sold in the store will have to get approval from 9/11 victims’ family members who are on the foundation’s board.

“Once the public starts coming in, you learn so much,” Daniels said. “We in no way presume to get everything right. We will accept that criticism, absolutely.”
