2 DAYS ONLY! AUGUST 26 & AUGUST 27
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation dedicated the 9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit in September 2013 to commemorate those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
The exhibit is intended to serve as an educational tool. Through the presentation of artifacts, including actual steel beams from the towers, documentary video, recordings of first-responder radio transmissions, as well as guided tours by FDNY firefighters, people will learn what took place and the ultimate sacrifice so many made on that day.
Because there is a whole other world outside New York City that might not remember 9/11 with the same clarity as we do — and because there are millions upon millions of U.S. children who have been born after that date — the Siller Foundation has been working on a way to recall and remind across America.
“Like a lot of other people, we are genuinely worried that the story of Sept. 11 isn’t being taught adequately in the schools,” Frank Siller explained. “Part of our mission as an organization has always been to spread the message of, ‘Never forget.’
“We talked for a while about the need to do something more and decided this was a good idea.”
So, what’s a mobile exhibit?
Well, it’s a truck really.
And it’s a big one.
Generally speaking, we’re talking about a 53-foot high-tech tractor-trailer which unfolds mechanically into a 1,100 square foot space containing 9/11 exhibits and artifacts.
Entrance into the exhibit is free of charge. Our goal is to provide an enlightening experience that will help communities to “Never Forget.”
