9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit Arrives in Florence
The exhibit features artifacts from the World Trade Center and guided tours from FDNY Firefighters who responded to Ground Zero on September 11th.
On Saturday, May 6, 2023, the Tunnel to Towers 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit will arrive at the Florence Government Center, 8100 Ewing Boulevard, Florence, Kentucky 41042.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is committed to ensuring that we NEVER FORGET what happened on September 11th, 2001.
Since 2013, the Tunnel to Towers 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit has traveled the country educating Americans about what happened that day.
Tours are conducted by retired New York City Firefighters who responded on September 11, 2001. They share their stories of what happened that day and the days after, bringing history to life for those who were born after September 11th or are too young to remember it.
The 83-foot tractor-trailer transforms into a 1,100 square foot exhibit which features World Trade Center Steel, aluminum façade from the buildings, radio transmissions from first responders, and items found in the rubble after the Twin Towers collapsed.
MeetNKY and the City of Florence brought the exhibit to Florence. Mayor Aubuchon stated, “We are humbled and grateful to be able to commemorate the lives that were lost on September 11, 2001, and honoring the sacrifices that were made in the wake of this tragedy. This display provides visitors an opportunity to reflect on the police officers, firefighters and paramedics, who display incredible amounts of courage in various circumstances every day. It is important that we recognize all first responders for the outstanding work that they do. Following September 11, I was honored to be involved in an event to plan a rally for patriotism and I know the impact this type of event can have toward increasing pride in our community and nation. It is important we always set aside time to reflect on the events of that fateful day and I am hopeful this exhibit will remind us of how blessed we are as a community.”
