Mobile Exhibit Honoring Those Who Lost Their Lives on 9/11
In 2013 the Tunnel to Towers Foundation launched its 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit, a tribute to all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, including the 343 members of the Fire Department of New York City (FDNY) who made the ultimate sacrifice. The high-tech, 83-foot tractor-trailer, which transforms into a 1,100-square-foot exhibit, is a tool to further educate people across the country about the events of that tragic day. Welcomed around the nation, from the Black Hills of South Dakota to the Tennessee State Fairgrounds, the memorial provides interactive education, including artifacts such as steel beams from the towers, documentary videos, and recordings of first-responder radio transmissions. Interactive guided tours are carried out by FDNY firefighters who provide firsthand accounts of the day and its aftermath. The 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit has traveled to nearly 50 states and Canada, and welcomed more than 500,000 people to date. For more information on the 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit, contact Exhibit@Tunnel2Towers.org. Visit the website to see if the exhibit is coming to your city or town.
