Fort Worth Museum of Science and History to offer free exhibit admission on 9/11

Written by FWD501cReporter

This Tuesday, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History (FWMSH) will offer free exhibit admission in remembrance of the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001. A post on the museum’s Facebook page stated:

“In remembrance of the events that occurred on 9/11/01, Museum exhibit admission is free to everyone on Tuesday September 11, 2018. The Museum is honored to be the keepers of a beam from the World Trade Center housed in our 9/11 Tribute Exhibit.”

The above is a picture of the beam from the World Trade Center that resides in the FWMSH that accompanied the Facebook post. In a description on the museum’s website, the beam is described as such: “At the center of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History’s 9/11 Tribute Exhibit is N-101, a full-façade panel that supported three floors (101-103) two stories above the center of the impact zone of the North Tower. The beam is comprised of three steel columns, bolted together, three stories tall and is the largest World Trade Center artifact in Texas.”

“The Museum is deeply honored to provide the community with a tribute site that pays homage to 9/11, the people who perished in the attacks and the brave men and women who served as first responders on that tragic day,” said Museum President Van A. Romans in a statement on the 9/11 Tribute exhibit web page. “As a history museum, ours is an appropriate venue for such an important American artifact, and we hope as many people as possible can have access to it.”
