This Saturday, 9/11, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History in the Fort Worth Cultural District opened a new exhibit, 9/11 Tribute, featuring the largest artifact in Texas from the World Trade Center in honor of the tenth anniversary. Museum-goers can view the beam which once supported three floors of the WTC (101-103). The location of the artifact was two stories above the center of the impact zone on the North Tower. You can find the permanent exhibit, 9/11 Tribute, to the right of the Museum’s main entrance.
Three steel columns bolted together, weighing approximately 6,500 pounds and measuring three stories high is a sight you don’t want to miss at the new exhibit! For more info on the artifact and exhibit, Click Here.
- In 2010, FWMSH President Van A. Romans and former Fort Worth Mayor Mike Moncrief sent in a request to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to be selected to receive a piece of the fallen twin towers.
- The artifact arrived at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History in February 2011.
- BNSF Logistics handled the delivery of the massive steel beam from NYC to Fort Worth free of charge to the Museum.
